Cooking tips for the caring cook.
- When a recipe calls for shredding lettuce, usually crisp iceberg lettuce is the ingredient of choice. To core the iceberg, lightly tap the stem end of the head on a counter. Then twist the core off. Rinse the whole head under cool running water, including the spot where the core was. Place inverted into a colander and let dry. Cut into eight wedges and cut each wedge into thin slices for shredded lettuce.
Avoid limp lettuce by wrapping unwashed vegetables in paper towels and tucking them into unsealed plastic bags in your crisper.
