Kitchen Hack – Keep Lettuce Fresh Longer
Here’s our latest Kitchen Hack! You cut your lettuce, toss it in an airtight container, store it in the refrigerator, but it typically browns before you even get the second salad prepared. It’s so wasteful and unnecessary. This simple kitchen hack is here to help your lettuce have a longer lifetime of freshness.
The Salad Spinner is your new best friend when it comes to drying off your freshly washed lettuce. For this we used Romaine. Place lettuce into the spinner and spin it a few times. You will be amazed at how much water comes out of your lettuce.
Lay the lettuce on paper towels and pat dry, then wrap the lettuce into the paper towels.
Place the wrapped lettuce in a plastic storage bag. Make sure you are getting all the air out when you zip up the bag. If you follow this method, your lettuce will stay fresh and green for a couple of weeks!
