To keep salad fresh longer try these tips

Assemble the salad in a bowl. Place heavier vegetables, like carrots and cucumbers, at the bottom of the bowl, and lay the lettuce and other leafy greens on top. Toss it gently, but don’t put the dressing on the salad, as this will make the leaves limp.

Wait to add dressing until right before you eat the salad. Store any dressing in a separate container in the refrigerator. Adding it too soon will make the leaves limp and soggy.

lace a clean, dry paper towel on top of the bowl. Lay it flat across the top of the leaves, or fold it for a smaller bowl. The towel will absorb water and condensation, keeping the leaves from getting soggy.

Seal the container with a lid, plastic wrap, or both. Spread a tight layer of plastic cling wrap on top of the bowl to keep the air from getting in and spoiling the leaves. If the bowl has a lid, put that on top of the plastic wrap for an extra layer of protection.
