Choose crisp, brightly colored lettuce with no blemishes, slime, browning or wilted leaves.

Store washed and dried lettuce in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for three to five days, depending on the variety.


Wash well and dry before using. Add dressing just before serving to prevent wilting. Lettuce is almost always eaten raw in salads or on sandwiches. Lettuce can also be steamed or added to soups at the end of cooking.
