Tricks In The Kitchen

     I remember when I worked for a spanish radio station where everyday the listeners could just call and, directly on the air, they shared different tips and advices about better housekeeping, kitchen matters, or any other suggestions destined to make our daily chores easier.  What I want to do here, in this section that I am going to call Kitchen Tips, is to offer you just that, tips, advices or suggestions that will help you solve any of your cooking worries.  And here goes my first tip:
Fresh Lettuce
     What do you usually do with leftover lettuce that has been in the refrigerator for a few days and it looks kind of old?  Unless it is rotten, DO NOT THROW IT AWAY!   Just dip them in cold water with some ice cubes and let it sit for a few minutes.  The lettuce will recuperate the crispiness, and the flavor as if it were recently purchased.  Dry it, break it up with your hands ( to better preserve the flavor) and it is ready to mix with your favorite ingredients to make a stupendous salad.
