Salad Secrets

May 2, 2020

- Americans eat approximately 11 pounds of lettuce per year, per person

 

- Lettuce should always be torn, never CUT or the edges will turn brown faster

 

- Never add salt to a lettuce salad until you are ready to serve it.  Salt tends to wilt and toughen      the lettuce

 

- Lettuce and vegetables will not spoil as quickly if you line your crisper with paper towels, they      will absorb any extra moisture

 

- Romaine lettuce has six times as much vitamin C and eight times as much vitamin A as Iceberg    lettuce

 

- The greener leaves on the outside of lettuce contain more nutrients than the inner leaves.  Try     to save as much as possible
