Keep lettuce crispier by removing the heart, then storing in a zip-lock bag with a wet paper towel. This works with any type of lettuce.

    I actually find that allowing air to circulate in the lettuce container prolongs its life - I often wrap it in a cloth towel

    Thats what I do. I wash then use a saled spinner. Then I put in a "Green" baggy

    I find that washing my lettuce in the salad spinner then storing it in an air tight container in the refrigerator keeps it crispy.
