As soon as you bring your lettuce home, pull off the leaves and rinse and soak it in very cold water. After you have dried the lettuce completely, put it in a resealable bag and remove the air. Then use a needle to prick ten to twenty evenly spaced holes and store the lettuce in the crisper in the refrigerator. For more information see "Eating on the Wild Side" by Jo Robinson, 2013.
Vegetables are not just for salads! Have you tried grilling? We love grilled bok choy.
