Salad Secrets

- 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
