* Make sure lettuce greens and vegetables are dry by using a Salad Spinner or towels before putting salad together.  It will stay fresh longer.

*Pass the dressing instead of pouring some over the salad when serving.  Let everyone decide how much they want on their salad and the greens will stay fresh.
