Kitchen Tip: FRESH LETTUCE
Keep lettuce fresh by placing it in a Zip-loc bag with clean paper towels. I’ve kept lettuce for a week by replacing the towels every other day. The paper towels absorbs the moisture, and keeps the lettuce crisp.
This also works if you wash the lettuce, drain thoroughly, and wrap the lettuce in paper towels before placing in Zip-loc bag. Also, tear the lettuce and DO NOT use a metal knife which will turn the lettuce brown and cause it to wilt.
I do with the same with spinach.
