    Angela Dawn's Note:

    I'm tired of spending so much money on bagged salads. I like the convenience and all, but it doesn't take THAT long to put salad together ahead of time. I like this mix because it's basic, and I can add other vegetables later.

    1. 1
      Remove any brown or heavily wilted outer leaves from all three kinds of head of lettuce.
    2. 2
      Fill a clean sink almost to the top with cold water. Add your red leaf and romaine lettuce.
    3. 3
      With your radicchio lettuce you'll want to simply peel the leaves off one by one and add to the cold sink.
    4. 4
      Let sit for 5 minutes. Then gently shake the lettuce under the water to move the water through the leaves and losen debris.
    5. 5
      Let sit for another 5-10 minutes so all of the dirt/sand/stuff settles to the bottom of the sink.
    6. 6
      Remove lettuce(s) and rinse once more with fresh cold water from the tap before laying on paper towel.
    7. 7
      Now simply break off pieces into decent bite size pieces and place in a large bowl.
    8. 8
      Doing one batch at a time (I don't know how big your salad spinner is) use your salad spinner (I like to use a med size model with the hand pump at the top)to remove excess water.
    9. 9
      Once dried in spinner, toss in carrots and store in large gallon size plastic bags. Store in the bottom crisper drawer in your fridge.

      What a great money saver this is - Total cost for 3 different lettuce $2.30 Double the size of a $4.00 bag of prepared. I will store it in a "Green" bag - They really work and this will keeps for well over a week- maybe even two weeks
