Look for crisp-looking, unwilted leaves that are free of dark spots.

Prepare

How do you prepare butter lettuce?

Butter lettuce is the perfect base for your favorite salad. Because of its wide leaves, it is perfect for wrapping whipped goat cheese, fresh ricotta or cottage cheese seasoned with herbs.

Storage

How do you store lettuce?

Clean lettuce before storing. Remove core and any wilted outer leaves. Rinse by holding head cored-end under running tap water allowing water to run all through the head to refresh it. Turn the lettuce head over and let the water run out. Store lettuce in plastic bag or airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
