Quick Tip: Make Lettuce Last Longer

This is a quick tip I wanted to share with you to keep your lettuce fresh and lasting longer - it's a trick I've learned all on my own. You ready? Here is a photo of my lettuce that was in the back of my fridge for TEN DAYS. I just took it out and cut it up and put it into my salad - honestly, it was forgotten in the veggie drawer! 

How to Keep Lettuce  Fresh for Up to 2 weeks!

So, how to I keep my lettuce SO FRESH for so long - up to two weeks?

OK, here it is - it's super simple. 

1. Wash the lettuce and get it nice and dry.
2. Get a clean, dry terry towel  - I got mine at Costco or here.
3. Wrap dried lettuce tightly in terry towel then put into a gallon-sized ziptop bag. 

Keep Lettuce fresher, longer

That's it! The terry towel keeps the lettuce from getting soggy and still keeps it fresh. So, if you like to make a little salad everyday or don't get to it right away, it keeps it fresh! 

Do you have a great way of keeping vegetables last longer? Please share!

  1. I love to buy the romaine lettuce at Costco, but it comes with 6 or 7 of them. I keep them fresh by wrapping them in tin foil. I don't even rinse. They seriously stay fresh for a month! I was super surprised. It makes eating salad in the winter easier, because we eat it less, but it is still good when we are ready to eat it. Thanks for the reminder to keep lettuce longer!

  2. Thank you both for the tips! I definitely needed these ideas! I buy this huge container of organic lettuce at Aldi and it goes bad before I can eat it all....i hate wasting food, but I end up throwing part of it out :(.
    Thanks so much!
