Lettuce (Baby Cos – Twin Pack), although it’s low in fibre, it’s high in minerals, such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium. It’s naturally low in sodium. Cos lettuce is packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate. It’s a good source of beta carotene, which converts into vitamin A in the body.
- Cos is the key ingredient of the famous Caesar Salad. You can also use the cupped internal leaves as edible bowls which can be topped with smoked salmon, creme fraiche, fresh dill and lemon. Try using the leaves as a substitute for a wrap with some thinly sliced capsicum, grated carrot, cherry tomato wedges and ham. Kids will love it and you will be helping to increase their vegetable intake.
