I normally purchase bagged spinach for salads and occasionally bagged lettuce. I also buy the bagged veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. Lately I've had an allergic reaction to some of the bagged stuff (but never the spinach). My lips get swollen and then chapped for several days.
Since the bagged stuff is supposed to be prewashed and therefore more expensive, it doesn't make sense to me to buy that and wash it. So finally, back to my original question.... .....
Do you take the outer leaves off lettuce and then use it? Do you wash the whole dang thing?
And has anyone else had this allergic reaction to bagged stuff that I've been having?
