How to Wash Lettuce

There are a few very important rules when it comes to eating fruit and vegetables. Which is the first rule? Wash them first, then enjoy! You always want to make sure your fruits and veggies are absolutely clean before you use them to prepare a meal. Frances Largemen-Roth shows you a quick and easy tip on how to wash lettuce to perfection. 

First, you need to slightly pop the head of lettuce on the counter top, that way the entire stem end can come out. Then, continue by removing the outer leaves first. You're now ready to move on to the sink and wash the head of lettuce thoroughly. Then, as you let the lettuce drain out a little, place it on a bowl and cover it with some damp paper towels to keep the surface moist so that it doesn't dry out and that way it will be ready for when you want to make your salad later on!
