Choose lettuce that is firm with crisp leaves. Check for decay at stem end.

In an airtight bag in refrigerator crisper. Use as soon as possible after purchase. Store the outer leaves of whole lettuce separately and add to soups.

Tear off leaves. Rinse well in cold water to remove grit, shake to dry.

Serving suggestion:
Roll any tasty salad combination with sliced chicken, cucumber and mango chutney in a large lettuce leaf to enclose. Slice open a long bread roll, spread with labneh or cottage cheese and lay the enclosed salad inside the roll. Wrap tightly in cling film and pack in lunchbox with apple and a frozen fruit juice.
