Hi everyone! It has been a loooong time since I've been here, but couldn't think of who else to ask. I typically buy the larger clamshell containers of organic lettuce to use at home. The main reason is to encourage myself to actually eat more veggies, which is easier for me to do when I can grab a big handful for a salad. The issue is the lettuce ends up decomposing in the clamshell way before the "best by" date. I've tried a couple things, like placing a new paper towel on top of the lettuce every time I use some, or wiping the extra moisture off the lid. Any ideas on how to lengthen the shelf life, even by a few days? Thanks.
