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
