Green Butter Leaf Lettuce

Description

This lettuce is known for its slightly sweet, almost buttery taste, adding a rich dimension to any salad. Its leaves are delicate yet crisp and come in a uniform shade of green. This lettuce also acts as a good source of vitamins A and K, as well as calcium.

Storage

Place unwashed lettuce in a plastic resealable bag, remove the air, or wrap in plastic wrap and store in the coldest part of the refrigerator. If prewashed, make sure lettuce is dry before storing. Individual dry leaves may be laid out on paper towels and rolled up prior to placing in a plastic bag. Avoid storing near apples, pears or bananas.
