Did you know you can revive wilted lettuce? Not just the base for salads: here are 5 great ways to see your wilted greens in a new light.
1. Braise Lettuce
Romaine is a great substitute for cabbage in cooked dishes, as lettuce can readily absorb flavours.
2. Use In Place Of A Wrap
Bun-less burgers and lettuce wraps are just the start. Be creative with Asian-inspired fillings, taco or fajita fillings, chicken nuggets or anything else you want to wrap in carb-free goodness.
4. Pickle It
If your lettuce hasn’t wilted yet, you can pickle it. The tangy flavour of pickled lettuce makes a great side dish or addition to sandwiches and salads.
5. Juice It
Sneak a few leaves into your homemade juice. We like the combo of romaine, lemon, apple and ginger, but you can experiment with any fruits and veggies you have on hand.
