We eat a lot of salad in our house! The best way to make sure you can throw together a quick salad is to have some fresh crisp lettuce in the fridge and ready to go! A lot of people ask me how to keep lettuce fresh, because my salads are so crispy and refreshing! Now I’m sharing my secret with you!
Here is how I store my romaine and other leafy lettuces after cutting. They will stay fresh for about 2 weeks with this method!
- Fill your sink with icy cold water. Separate your leaves and place them in the water to wash them (let them sit about 5 minutes).
- Remove the lettuce, gently shake or spin dry with a salad spinner (not completely dry, just get most of the water off).
- Lay out paper towels and heap the lettuce on the paper towel, roll it up and place it in a food safe plastic grocery bag. Store in the fridge.
Your lettuce will always be crisp and ready to go!
