Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Lettuce for a Crowd

This tip comes from my mother, who suggested it when I was making salad for a crowd:

Wash and tear or chop the greens as usual, and spin them in the salad spinner. Once done, store them in a clean pillowcase in the refrigerator.

The pillowcase not only houses as large quantity, but it also absorbs any excess water, keeping the greens crisp and fresh until it is ready to use.

Just make sure the pillowcase has not been dried with a scented dryer sheet or anything that could give off an unpleasant flavor to the food.

    I never thought of this! I always struggle with lettuce storage that is not bulky but also absorbs the moisture- great idea!
