Tips on How to Wash Lettuce

Remove any damaged or wilted leaves.

Fill salad spinner, or bowl with cold water. Add vegetable wash if you have it.

Break off leaves and please in bowl of cold water. Gently agitate.

Lift salad spinner colander out of the water, or lift leaves out of the water. It’s important not pour the bowl of water out into a colander. The dirt settles on the bottle and then will pour back onto your lettuce.

Spin, and pat dry leaves with paper towels, or clean towels.

Place leaves in a crisper container/ airtight bag container with a dry paper towel. The towel will soap up any excess water but also leave enough moisture in the container to keep your lettuce crisp.
