If you're tired of lettuce going bad and having to throw it away, with this trick you can forget about it and keep it fresh for up to a month.
Lettuce is one of the most purchased and consumed foods in every home, and it is not for less: it is beneficial for our cardiovascular health, helps the proper functioning of the kidneys, is depurative, very low in calories, refreshing, accompanies very well other foods, etc.. And all these are just some of the many points in favor of such a healthy food.
But it also has a weak point: it usually spoils within a few days, or at least loses its freshness and does not taste as good. However, there are ways to eliminate this negative element, so that all are advantages when buying and eating lettuce, keeping it for long periods of time in the refrigerator.
Trick to keep lettuce fresh
This trick is really good, because thanks to it it is possible to keep fresh lettuce in the fridge for up to a month, so you can buy a lot of lettuce and eat it little by little, without worrying about it going bad. Over the past few weeks, the trick is spreading like wildfire on social media thanks to influencer @deliciousmartha, who is very popular with her recipes and cooking tips, and has nearly 850,000 followers on Instagram and more than 400,000 on TikTok.
In one of her most recent videos of cooking tips, she especially highlights the one for keeping lettuce fresh, which is both very simple and very effective. Just wrap it in aluminum foil and put it in the fridge: something as easy as this can extend its edible life by up to a month. Also, in the video we can see how @deliciousmartha writes the date of the day on the foil with a marker, which is a very nice detail so that we always know when the month is coming up. Although no doubt, in so much time it will give us time to eat it.

And if you already have it cut, another option is to put it inside a glass jar, covered with kitchen paper to absorb the moisture. In her other cooking tips, @deliciousmartha recommends things as varied as turning a plastic bottle into a baby bottle, the best time to open an avocado or keeping crackers crunchy.
