Lettuce is a good source of vitamin A, folate, potassium and fiber!
Step 1: Inspect your head of lettuce and remove any wilted or discolored leaves. These tend to be around the outside of the head of lettuce.
Step 2: Wash the romaine lettuce thoroughly, using cool running water. Get in between all of the different layers of lettuce leaves.
Step 3: Place the leaves in a salad spinner and use it to dry the leaves, or lay the wet lettuce leaves between layers of paper towels and allow the moisture to be soaked up.
Step 4: Tear the leaves with your hands into the size pieces that you desire, or leave the romaine leaves long for dishes such as Caesar salads.
