I love this tip because I always forget about my lettuce in the crisper and when i find it it’s usually soggy and i just toss it. Next time I willl use this tip and let you know how it turns out. Btw thanks for ALL the tips and tricks you give us. They really are useful.

Use the lemon peel for your hands . Save twice

Great tip – thanks! I was adding lemon peel & juice to my spinach that I piled on my burrito (along with tomatoes, raisins, Greek yogurt & refried beans) because of the study showing it helped some skin cancers. A couple age spots have started getting smaller too (or is it my wishful thinking!) But the lettuce could probably be a little perkier as well!

I’ve always submerged limp veggies in icy cold water, but have never tried adding lemon. I wonder what the acid from the lemon does? Sounds like an experiment in my kitchen is happening…. :)

After having rinsed and dried ones lettuce leaves, put in freezer and count to ten, they’ll come out nice and crispy to add a little olive oil, vinegar and salt.
