Iceberg Lettuce has been the go-to choice of leaf in many dishes. It is great in soups and appetizers and is also an alternative to shredded cabbage, offering a sweeter and milder flavor. Its relatively neutral taste allows other flavors in the dish to shine, but its crunchy texture is unbeatable.
Pack the organic Iceberg Lettuce in a reusable breathable pouch and store them in the fridge. This would allow it to maintain its freshness for a longer duration. If you want to store individual lettuce leaves, make sure to wash them under warm water before refrigerating them.
When cooking with iceberg lettuce, enhance its crunchiness by briefly soaking the torn or chopped leaves in ice water for about 10 minutes before using them in salads or sandwiches. This simple step not only revitalizes the crisp texture but also adds an extra refreshing element to your dishes.
