Lettuce is one of the most popular fresh vegetables in Canada Lettuce leaves should be torn by hand; cutting with a knife will turn the edges brown faster. If you must cut lettuce, be sure to use a stainless steel knife. The outer, greener leaves of lettuce contain more vitamins and minerals then the paler inner leaves.
