put salad in a bowl and then put on plastic wrap over it and it will stay fresh for a maximum of a week; if it is bought from the store empty it out in a bowl and do the same thing( no dressing, add a mixture of salt and sugar and you can add pepper if you would like)
keep green in partially opened ziploc. keep "dry" ingredients (squash, broccoli, bell peppers, carrots, etc) in separate partially opened ziploc. keep "wet" ingredients (i.e. tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives,etc.) in closed ziploc. When you are ready to eat, mix portions together. I've done this for years. Obviously, your "wet" ingredients will not stay fresh as long. But it beats a soggy salad or cutting up the ingredients on a daily basis.
after you wash the lettuce take a paper towel and dry off the leaves and whatever else you've added to take as much moisture out as possible, then keep it refrigerated in a large bowl covered with paper towels. do not add any dressing till your serving. wallah
1:Wrap the lettuce in a dry paper towel around the root base. 2:Place the lettuce into a freezer bag or an airtight plastic container. 3:Ensure that you remove as much air from the bag as possible. 4:Ensure that you remove as much air from the bag as possible. 5:Store in the fridge as normal. The paper towel will absorb moisture that causes sogginess. :) that is all thanks.
squeeze a lemon over the salad. Lemon will keep the lettuce from turning brown and any other veggie or fruit known for turning brown and cover with plastic or tight Lid. lemon is also great for apples too.
