How To Cut Romaine Lettuce

Romaine lettuce is a popular sandwich & salad greens choice due to the natural crunch it adds to meals. Be certain to rinse & clean it well before use. Once it is prepared, the lettuce may serve as the base for chef salad, Classic Cobb Salad, Italian-Style Green Salad & even just a simple combination topped with quinoa, carrots, tomatoes & cucumbers.

Over a cutting board, stack several rinsed & dried leaves on top of each other. Using a chef knife, slice 1/2-inch thick pieces working your way from the bottom of the stalk end to the leafy green portion of the leaves. Discard any pieces with blemishes.
