How do I keep chopped or shredded lettuce fresh?
Wrapping up freshly chopped or shredded lettuce in a clean rolled kitchen towel prior to storing in the fridge can help keep lettuce crisp and preserve its taste. For optimal freshness, be sure to use the lettuce quickly, storing for no more than three days.
If you’re running low on prep time, bagged varieties of chopped or shredded lettuce are a great way to incorporate fresh ingredients in a pinch for use in recipes like homemade tacos or burgers. To store bagged lettuce, open the packaging to allow air flow and place in the fridge immediately.
