You’ve washed your lettuce and given it a few whirls in your salad spinner, but the excess moisture on the leaves is making your lunch look all wilted and slimy and sad. This two-second trick guarantees you’ll have crisper salad greens for days.
What you need: Plastic baggies and paper towels
What you do: After you wash your romaine (or any other super-watery veggies), lay it out on a paper towel. Then, roll up the paper towel and the lettuce and seal it together in a plastic baggie that you can store in your fridge.
Why it works: The paper towel will absorb any excess moisture on the greens so that your lettuce is fresh, not slimy, when you go to assemble your lunch.
