Green leaf lettuce has tender, delicate green leaves that are not as crisp as romaine or iceberg lettuce. Green leaf lettuce is an excellent source for both vitamins A and K.  

Selection and storage

Refrigerate unwashed leaves in a plastic bag in the vegetable drawer. Do not store lettuce with melons, apples, pears, or other ethylene gas-emitting fruits as they will cause the lettuce to turn brown.

Preparation and serving methods

Lettuce is usually eaten raw, but it is also commonly grilled, sautéed, braised, and cooked in a variety of recipes.
