It's obviously much easier to buy pre-washed salad. I often get it in plastic bags or boxes, marked "ready to eat."
The problem is that in a few days, the salad is usually in horrible condition. Some of the lettuce is still OK, but it's mixed in with pieces that are .. slimy.
The problem, of course, is the humidity in the bag causes some of the lettuce and greens to decompose quickly. I insert a few paper towels, which seems to help a bit, but nevertheless, the salad doesn't last a week, regardless of the "sell by" date.
How can I keep pre-washed salad longer?
