Lettuce

Roll unwashed lettuce in a dry towel, then store in a sealed bag in the refrigerator.

Do not wash lettuce leaves until they are ready to be eaten. Roll lettuce leaves in a dry towel (cloth or paper), which will absorb extra moisture over time, then store in a sealed bag or container in the refrigerator.

To bring life back to wilted lettuce, soak the leaves in an ice water bath for up to 30 minutes. Watch a video to learn how.
