We eat a lot of salads and prefer the 50/50 salad mix we get at our local Ralph’s (Kroeger) market over those from a much closer Albertson’s location because the Albertson’s product seems to develop way too much moisture way too quickly in the refrigerator. Lately the Ralph’s product has been doing the same thing. I try to pick the driest looking container but the last two have lasted maybe 4 days before the red lettuce starts to get slimy, which then ruins all of it quickly. This is getting pretty annoying.
I don’t want to have to go to the trouble of taking all the lettuce out and ‘wrapping’ it in paper towels (assuming that might help). Another idea is to just buy the lettuces separately and make our own mix as we go, but the mix is significantly less costly.
Any helpful suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
