Today I harvested some salad greens from our garden! Very exciting.
I also wanted to share a kitchen tip with you. I highly recommend using a salad spinner, and I’ll share why. First, I’ll tell you that I don’t stock up on tons of kitchen gadgets that I don’t use regularly. I didn’t really think I needed a salad spinner, but Tad wanted to get one (thanks, Alton Brown), and we found one on sale for $3 at Wal-mart. I started using it and noticed a big difference!
When you spin your salad greens after washing them, they stay fresh longer. I love salad, and when I make a salad I usually make enough for another meal as well. When you take a minute to spin your greens, they will last longer in the fridge and not get “wilty and brown! Linked to:
