How do you dry your lettuce?

I usually cut it and put it in the strainer and run water over it and then dry it with paper towels. This takes forever and still feels wet. Suggestions?

    You can also wrap the wet lettuce in a large dishtowel and then just whip it around and around. Water will fly a little and you may need to change towels to ensure dryness, but it works.

    I don't dry it, I just shake excess water off and make a salad.

    Rinse it off before you cut it, then just shake it off in the sink. For iceberg I guess that wouldn't work, but I don't eat iceberg. I also don't care if the lettuce is completely dry, I like a little moisture on it.

    Salad spinner.  I do NOT want my dressing watered down, or to have a wet mess on my plate.  BTW, leftover lettuce that you have spun dry, but NOT put dressing on,  keeps better than wet lettuce.  Put it in a zipbag with a square of paper towel.

    I don't and it is not watery. Drain it a while.

    I have a salad spinner-  I put the washed lettuce in the strainer part that is in the bowl, put the lid on, and press the spin button.

    I wash the lettuce by running each leaf, front and back, through water, and I also use a bowl of water and wash it again that way. I raised lettuce for years and know what can get in there. :)

    Great advise.
