Coring and Cleaning LettuceHold the lettuce head with both hands and firmly hit the head, core side down, against your countertop. Then twist the core and it should come right out. To clean the lettuce, run water into the area where the core was removed. Invert the lettuce and allow the water to drain out before using. By M. Day

Looking for Ruby Tuesday's Potato Salad RecipeI recently ate at Ruby Tuesdays and fell in love with their potato salad from their salad bar. It was just so tasty!
