CRISPER SALADS WITH LETTUCE

When shopping for lettuce, select heads that give slightly when you squeeze. These firm (not hard) heads make perfect lettuce cups. They can be cut into wedges, rafts, or chunks or torn into bite-size pieces. The outer leaves may be pulled off easily to put into sandwiches or used to line bowls or plates. TO CORE LETTUCE: When you get home, strip off any leaves that may seem too coarse for salad use. Holding the hard core end down, whack it on the kitchen counter, then lift or twist out the core with your fingers. You may core with a knife, but cut edges discolor sooner. RINSING: Cleanliness is a characteristic of lettuce. However, rinsing is recommended to restore moisture lost in transit. Hold the hard core end up under forcefully running cold water. Put the rinsed head of lettuce in the collander or rack, and let it drain thoroughly with cored-end down. STORING LETTUCE: Store in your refrigerator in a disposable plastic bag until ready to use.
