Green Cleaning

Here's some helpful tips on how to clean lettuce.  Unless you are buying organic, lettuce can be full of pesticides and other contaminants!

  1. Remove and discard lettuce core; separate leaves.
  2. Place leaves in a clean sink filled with cold water for a few minutes. Stir occasionally to let any grit fall off the leaves.
  3. Scoop wet leaves out of water and dry in a salad spinner or between layers of paper towels.
  4. Roll the leaves up in dry paper towels and seal in a plastic bag (with a few holes poked in it), then refrigerate for up to a week.
