I have a problem with lettuce. I am simply horrible about using it within the first five days that it's in my house. Seriously, it's an issue. I hate wasting food, but once my greens go sad and limp it's all over — or is it?

Reader's Digest (among several other places around the interwebs) tells us that by soaking your greens in a bowl of cold water that's been combined with the juice of 1/2 a lemon, your greens will be good as new.

It's a tip worth trying although water alone is enough to plump up some greens, we're curious to see if the lemon juice gives it an extra boost. Have you tried this in the past? Let us know in the comments below!
