Iceberg Lettuce

Description

Although it is true that darker greens contain more nutrients, iceberg is an excellent choice when combined with a variety of other greens. Its sweet and mild flavor makes it a perfect mix with other greens that tend to be more bitter. This lettuce variety is 96 percent water, so it’ll keep you hydrated too!

Storage

Iceberg lettuce should be washed prior to storing. Twist and lift out the core. Rinse the lettuce and drain thoroughly core side down. Wrap lettuce in a dry paper towel and place in a resealable bag, removing the air. Store in the refrigerator. Avoid storing near apples, pears or bananas.
