    Salad Tips

    Here are tips for cleaning, storing, and preparing the greens you

    have selected for your great salad recipe.Cleaning

    How to Wash Greens

    Place leafy greens in basket of salad spinner. With salad spinner in

    sink, run cold water through spinner while turning the basket. Repeat

    once or twice, if necessary, to make sure greens are clean and dry.

    Pat dry with paper towels, if necessary. If you do not have a salad

    spinner, rinse greens under cold running water until clean. Then, pat

    dry with paper towels.

    How to Wash Fresh Herbs

    Always wash fresh herbs before use. Rinse small bunches under cold

    running water, then blot dry. Or when needing to clean a large amount

    of herbs, fill the sink with cold water and swish the herbs around to

    remove any dirt. Remove the herbs from the sink and place in a salad

    spinner to spin dry. Or, place on paper towels and gently blot dry.


    How to store Leafy Greens

    Store greens wrapped between dry paper towels, if desired, in a

    perforated plastic bag or loosely wrapped in a plastic bag in the

    refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    How to Store Long Stemmed Herbs

    Place long-stemmed fresh herbs, such as parsley, cilantro and dill,

    in a tall glass with the stem ends down. Fill with about an inch of

    cold water. Cover the leaves with a plastic bag and refrigerate until

    ready to use, changing the water every 2 days. Herbs should stay

    vibrant and fresh for about 5 days.


    How to Core Lettuce

    Holding head of lettuce so that bottom, or core end, faces a flat

    surface, bring the lettuce down hard against the surface to loosen

    core. Pull out core and discard.

    How to Prepare Lettuce

    Remove the core from the head of lettuce, then pull the lettuce apart

    from the core end and tear into bite-sized pieces. Do not chop tender

    lettuces, such as butterhead, with a knife since this can cause the

    lettuce to turn brown around the edges. Less delicate lettuces, such

    as romaine, can be cut but be sure to use a sharp knife.

    How to Shred Lettuce

    Cut head of cored iceberg lettuce in half. Place each half, cut side

    down, on cutting board. Cut across the halves into thin slices, then

    separate slices into shreds.
