Storage tips: Refrigerate in a loosely wrapped plastic bag. Lettuce should store at least a week.

How to eat: Lettuce is the staple to a fresh salad. Wash leaves well, drain, chop and toss with a dressing and other raw veggies.

This is a perfect salad for a Fourth of July celebration!

Lettuce leaves, washed and torn into pieces
Red Radishes, sliced
White Salad turnips, sliced
Blueberries, fresh or frozen
Scallions, chopped

Toss vegetables and pour over whisked dressing ingredients:

½ cup yogurt
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1-2 teaspoons maple syrup
Salt and pepper to taste

Lettuce head sizes vary depending on variety and seasonality, so I put in a range of ingredients to reflect this.  Try this also with bacon as the cooking fat...  Yum!

1-3 TBLS olive oil
1-2 cloves of garlic or garlic scapes, minced
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 head romaine lettuce, washed, dried, and leaves chopped into 1" wide strips
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add remaining ingredients and cover until lettuce wilts, about 2-3 minutes.  Uncover and saute until liquid evaporates, another approx 5 minutes.  Serve hot!

This easy salad dressing is made from ingredients that you probably have on hand already, can be made in only a couple of minutes, and is fresh and delicious!

¼ cup olive oil
1 TBSP vinegar (cider or balsamic)
1 TSP prepared mustard
1 TSP naturally fermented soy sauce (optional)

Wisk all ingredients together and drizzle over salad greens. Any minced fresh herb makes a nice optional addition. 

2-3 slices bacon
3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
parmesan cheese, grated

Fry bacon. Remove from skillet. Saute mushrooms in the bacon fat until soft, 8-10 minutes. Pour mushrooms and bacon fat over the greens hot. Top with the bacon, crumbled, and some grated Parmesan cheese.
