There is also a plastic lettuce knife for sale that doesn't make the lettuce go brown on the cut edges. I haven't tried it myself, but am going to.

Cut or shredded lettuce will break down more easily than whole or torn because the cells along the edge have been damaged instead of kept whole. This is why tearing lettuce is recommended. I agree with the previous poster. Buy a head of lettuce and cut or shred what you need, as you need it. If you wash the head of lettuce when you get it wrap it with a paper towel before you put it back in the bag. This will keep the lettuce crisp and avoids the sliminess that can occur when it is touching the plastic for an extended period. I do this with my lettuce and it usually lasts at least a week. Buying heads of lettuce should also save you some money over the more expensive bagged lettuce.
I REALLY LIKE THE SHREDDED LETTUCE IN THE BAG BUT I ONLY GET TO USE OUT OF IT 1 OR 2 TIMES AND IT TURNS BROWN ! ANYONE KNOW HOW TO KEEP IT FRESH FOR AT LEAST 4 DAYS ?
The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !
