Why You Might Want to Consider Washing Your Bagged and Ready to Eat Lettuce: A Photo Montage

As I was preparing a salad tonight, the lettuce just looked...dirty. Normally, I don't wash the triple washed lettuce that one finds in any local grocery store nowadays. For some reason, tonight was different though and I embarked on a little experiment. See below for my horrifying results. This just may be the thing that prompts you to get the salad spinner out of the cupboard and put your kid to work spinning lettuce.




The lettuce in question



















The OXO Salad Spinner that was used in the demonstration


















The lettuce after 3 times in the spinner


















The water in the bowl after the 3rd washing. Yes, the 3rd washing. Imagine what it looked like after the first. This should convince you to start washing. Don't let a breakout of E. Coli be the one thing that does convince you.

Thank you so much for doing this and opening my eyes to the evil of pre-washed salad. That is just really gross.
