Lettuce – Red, Green or Romaine

by | Jul 18, 2013 | Market News, CSA Member Updates, What's in your share box

This week’s share will include either leaf lettuce (red or green) or Romaine lettuce.

Red leaf lettuce
Red leaf lettuce adds interesting color and texture to any salad.  It is a rich source of vitamins A and K, and is high in antioxidants.  Store in a plastic bag in the hydrator drawer of the refrigerator.  Wash just before using.  It has a shorter shelf life than some lettuces, so remember to use it within a few days.

Green leaf lettuce
Green leaf lettuce, along with red leaf, is an excellent source of vitamins A and K.  In general, the greener and darker the leaf, the higher the nutritional value.  All of the lettuces provide a great source of dietary fiber as well.  Store green leaf lettuce in a plastic bag in the hydrator drawer of the refrigerator.  Wash just before using.  Remember to eat it within a few days.

Romaine lettuce
Romaine lettuce is high in water content and provides 2 grams of fiber per serving.  It is also rich in the B vitamins, vitamin A, C, and K, and is a good source of calcium and iron.  It provides other minerals such as copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc.  Store in open top plastic bag, wait to wash until just before using.   One suggestion is to wrap the bottom (root end) in a damp paper towel and store upright in a large plastic bag.
