  • Summary

    To ensure perfectly cold, crisp lettuce leaves, float the lettuce in a bowl of cold water, drain, and repeat. Spin dry and layer the lettuce on a clean towel, topped with paper towel and layered again. Roll up the paper towel and place in the refrigerator until ready to use. From the book "Lucinda's Rustic Italian Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).
