Salad Greens Category
These are usually eaten raw, but they can also be stir-fried or steamed. They vary in nutrients, ranging from superfoods like kale, spinach, and beet greens down to arugula, butter lettuce, and the lowly iceberg lettuce, which has been described as little more than crunchy water.
Wash these and dry them (with a spinner or towels) before using, since moist leaves repel oil-based dressings. Store salad greens in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator.
