Store your greens or lettuce in a sealed bag or container with a paper towel on the bottom and even one half way through the pile, in your refrigerator.
Greens and lettuce contain moisture which helps them keep then crisp and tasty. If exposed to the conditioned air circulating in the refrigerator, it will dehydrate your herbs and cause them to wither and become limp. The best methods to keep them fresh and crisp is to help them retain their moisture without laying in water which causes them to rot quicker.
Extra greens can be frozen for later use by placing them in a freezer bag and drawing all the air out, without smashing your greens, before sealing the bag. One technique is placing the greens in a freezer bag and sealing the bag almost all the way closed. Then with your mouth suck the air out of the bag, then sealing the last portion of the seal while still sucking on the corner of the bag. This draws the air out without physical force cracking your greens.
