Romaine lettuce is a favourite with just about every salad lover, and for good reason. Its mild, slightly sweet flavour and satisfying crispiness make it one of the most easy to use salad greens. Whether in a classic Caesar salad or in an “everything” tossed salad, romaine is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
How to Store
DOLE Chopped Romaine should be kept refrigerated at home in its original bag. The bag is made of specially designed film to keep the salad fresh. Store the salad in the refrigerator crisper or drawer. Store leftovers in the original bag, tightly closed, in the refrigerator.
How to Select
Purchase DOLE Chopped Romaine in the refrigerated area of the supermarket's produce section. If salads are not kept under refrigeration, it will affect the product quality.
On the front of each package, the salad is stamped with an "ENJOY BY" date that should give you at least a few days to store after purchased. The salad is packaged in a see-through bag. When purchasing a salad, check the date stamped on the package and look at the salad to make sure it appears fresh. Do not purchase salads with a considerable number of brown-edged lettuce pieces or lettuce that appears excessively wet.
DOLE Chopped Romaine is washed and ready-to-eat. Therefore, it is not necessary to wash the salad prior to eating. However, rinsing your salad again will not damage the lettuce in any way.
