Crops & Varieties: Lettuce
Try throwing lots of full-leaf, fresh herbs such as dill, parsley or basil into your salad.
Use whole lettuce leaves as burrito or eggroll wraps or form them into cups —stuff with beans and cheese, cooked tofu or meats, or almost anything you might cook up. Leaves are great for scooping up dips.
Salads don't have to be a side-dish. Toss in meat, grains, tofu and other veggies or fruits to turn that salad into a meal!
As with most greens, if your lettuce is looking a bit limp toss it into icy cold water (if you have a salad spinner this handy tool is perfect now) for 20-30 minutes and then dry it off and you will find your lettuce has perked up considerably.
