The easiest way to freeze lettuce is to wash it, spin or pat dry with paper towels and then store in a Ziploc bag. If you find that the leaves are sticking together, place small amounts of water on them so they don’t stick.

When frozen, lettuce will stay fresh for about three months if kept at 0 degrees Fahrenheit (or below) in a freezer without any other food around it. So make sure there is plenty of space between your bags of lettuce when storing them.

Lettuce can be heated by microwave as long as it has been properly stored first; otherwise heating may destroy vitamins and nutrients found naturally in the vegetable.
