Are you talking about a whole lettuce or cut lettuce?

I typically make a mixed salad with Lettuce (or Romaine), celery, carrots. and radishes. I put the mixture in a Gallon size Freezer bag. Surround the mixture with paper towels (I use 3 paper towels) and then squeeze most of the air out of the bag and seal it. Good for 7 days. I usually get 4-5 days worth of salad.

Add tomato and/or cucumber when you plate a salad, NOT in the bag.

7 days.

Mom old tricks to extend shelf life. Core the iceberg head before storage. When preparing, tear with your hands or use a plastic lettuce knife, no metal. Place a paper towel over the stored lettuce, replace when damp.

yeah, the paper towel trick works for all greens that risk going soggy in the refrigerator.

I keep iceberg for > a week, here's how.
I have one of the Tupperware 'lettuce keepers' but lost the spiked base that goes in the bottom. So armed with the measurements, go to $tree & get a shallow plastic dish that fits. Drill many 1/4" holes in said dish. Put 1/4 cup baking soda in the bottom of the 'keeper' & put said dish upside down over that.
Lettuce; remove core & outer 'debris' leaves by hand (no cutting), place inside unwashed, snap lid on & burp the air out.
I know it sounds wacked but it works.

I can keep cut iceberg fresh for a week or more with a couple of mist-sprays of lemon juice before sealing it in a Ziploc.
