TIP OF THE DAY: How To Dry Salad

Here’s a helpful tip for drying salad greens.

Some people have the luxury of space for a salad spinner or a colander, two favorite salad-drying techniques.

Others don’t have the space, or simply don’t own these utensils.

But every kitchen has a bowl and paper towels. So here’s the easy tip:

  • Wash your greens, then lay them on paper towels or a dish towel. Loosely roll up the greens in the towel(s) and shake them to remove moisture.
  • The greens will still have excess moisture, so lay a dry dish towel or double paper towel in your salad bowl. Let the greens continue to drain until ready to serve.
  • Then, simply pull up the towel and you’re ready to go.
