Hi Friends,
Does anyone have tips on the best way to store an open bag of pre-packaged salad mix?

Hmmm, try a sealed plastic container maybe? I generally just put it in another plastic bag and seal it best i can. I tend to use whats left pretty quickly though, so its not such a worry.

I've seen ziploc storage bags that are perforated, they claim this is best for storing fresh vegetables. I've not used them, so I don't know.

I just store it in the bag it came in, take out what I need, then squeeze out as much air as possible and fold down and clip with a clothes pin (too cheap to buy the bag clips). It lasts a week.

I buy the salad that comes in a resealable bag, but my latest thing is using head lettuce, and cutting it up as I need it. Its cheaper for me, head lettuce is like 1.25 where I can, vs the bag stuff which is over 4.00. :)
