How To Store Lettuce So It Stays Fresh for 2 Weeks or More

Choose Fresh Lettuce: Select crisp, fresh lettuce heads without any signs of wilting or browning.

Wash and Dry: Rinse the lettuce leaves under cold water to remove any dirt or debris. Gently pat the leaves dry with paper towels or use a salad spinner to remove excess moisture.

Wrap in Paper Towels: Place the lettuce leaves between layers of paper towels to absorb any remaining moisture. This helps prevent wilting and keeps the lettuce crisp.

Store in an Airtight Container: Transfer the lettuce leaves to an airtight container or resealable plastic bag. Press out any excess air before sealing the container to maintain freshness.

Add a Paper Towel: Place an additional dry paper towel in the container with the lettuce to absorb any excess moisture and help prolong freshness.

Refrigerate Properly: Store the sealed container of lettuce in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. The ideal temperature for storing lettuce is around 32 to 40°F (0 to 4°C).
