Romaine Lettuce

To use up wilted lettuce, sauté in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper for a side dish!

How to Select

Choose closely bunched, fresh-looking leaves. Avoid brown, wilting edges.

How to Store

Do not wash for storage. Refrigerate in plastic bag with some air holes for use within 1 week.

How to Prepare

Remove any brown or slimy leaves. Rinse in cold water. Dry well; pat between towels, or use a salad spinner. Eat raw: Chop and use as a salad base, add to sandwiches, or mix with other greens and vegetables for more nutrients. Eat cooked: Use larger leaves as wraps, steam, sauté, or braise.
