Living’ Lettuces- Are They Worth It?
You may have seen organic Cress, Bibb or Butter Lettuce available in your market with the roots still on. You may also have noticed that they're pricier than their rootless counterparts.
Should you 'splurge'?
The leaves will last a bit longer in your fridge and taste much more fresh and crisp compared to that which you might find in a pre-packed, plastic bag.
Just be sure to wash the leaves thoroughly in your salad spinner, at least two, if not three times, right before you prep it with some olive oil, avocado, hearts of palm, strawberry slices and a spritz of lemon.
