Preventing soggy and quickly spoiling lettuce is one of my kitchen crusades. After trying several techniques, I’ve found the best solution… and it’s actually so simple, you’ll find yourself eating more salads!
When returning from the market or grocery store, wash all lettuce greens and dry in the salad spinner. It’s important to get as much water as possible off the greens. Then wrap the greens in a couple of paper towels and place inside a one-gallon resealable bag. Gently press down to remove a bit of the air and refrigerate. You will be amazed how much longer the lettuce will keep.
