Romaine Hearts are perfect as a salad base and make a great foundation for lettuce wraps. Romaine Hearts are the brighter, more tender, innermost leaves of Romaine lettuce and are mild and delicious in flavor and crisp in texture.
Care & Handling
Green Giant® Fresh Romaine Hearts are carefully selected and packaged 3 hearts in a bag. Look for leaves that look fresh and not wilted. Avoid leaves that are discolored, have dark spots or cracked ribs.
For optimal shelf life and product quality, keep unused portion in the bag it was sold in and store in the refrigerator.
Wash under cold running water. If you're not using the entire lettuce at one meal, just remove as many leaves as you need from the stem. A salad spinner greatly simplifies the preparation of greens by drying them quickly and thoroughly. Dry leaves are a must if the dressing is to adhere properly.
