I love the convenience of bagged salad lettuce, but I hate the fact that it goes brown so fast and that it has so many lettuce "ribs" that end up in the bottom of the bag and usually get tossed out. So I prefer to buy this bagged lettuce from TJs. I purchase both the leaf and the romaine lettuce. The leaves are separated and cleaned and in a zip lock package. I can pull out a few leaves and tear them up for a salad and remove the "ribs" which I don't like. The lettuce stays fresh for about a week in the bag if kept tightly sealed.
