Long-lasting lettuce is our specialty. Harvesting the lettuce with its roots, keeps the plants alive helping them stay fresh longer for you. We also recommend wrapping the roots with a damp papertowel. The lettuce can be put back in the bag and kept in the refrigerator crisper drawer.
Personally, we love our OXO salad spinner. Sometimes, we will clean the entire head of lettuce, break it up (or use a salad knife), and then store what we don’t use in the salad spinner in our refrigerator. This allows the lettuce to keep drained. Excess water on the leaves will cause it to spoil. Also, it makes it easy for the next meal!
