I buy romain lettuce in bulk from a warehouse club and keep it fresh by putting the heads in zippered plastic bags (unwashed) with a couple of paper towels. The paper towels absorb the moisture and the lettuce stays fresh for up to 2 weeks. This also works for other veggies and salad greens like spinach.

If you like crunchy, fresh lettuce that will keep in your refrigerator for at least 1 week, try this tip. Buy you a Foodsaver from Costco, buy a dozen wide mouth mason jars from Walmart, and order a wide mouth sealer from Foodsaver (about $8.00) I like to buy Romain Lettuce in bulk, chop it into bite size, wash and spin, pack in jars and seal. The lettuce will stay dry, and super crunchy. A money saver and a super easy way to make a wonderful salad.
