Iceberg lettuce is one of the most recognizable veggies that call the produce aisle home. Despite having a higher water content than other lettuce varieties, its leaves are still a healthy choice to chomp on as they are low in calories and naturally fat-free.
Select green heads with crisp outer leaves. To wash, remove the core with a paring knife, open the head with your hands, immerse in a bowl of cool water and swish gently. After 30 seconds, blot dry with paper towels. Roll the leaves in paper towels and a plastic bag to preserve in your refrigerator’s crisper up to one week.
