How To Choose Types of Lettuce and Salad Greens


Choose the crispest leaves available. Look for greens, reds, or yellows that have the clearest, most vibrant colors. Avoid any leaves that are limp or browned along the edges. The stems should be crisp, breaking easily when they are bent.

Salad greens are at their best during the summer months, but today many are available all year long. Increasingly, you also can find packaged mixtures of greens, pre-washed and ready to use. Be sure to inspect the plastic packages carefully and discard any that show too much moisture on the inside or have leaves that have begun to wilt, turn brown, or show signs of mold.
