Don’t Pat Your Lettuce- Use a Salad Spinner

Submitted by

photo 300x224 Dont Pat Your Lettuce  Use a Salad SpinnerAfter a couple months of patting my lettuce (AKA- towel drying it while trying not to mush it after rinsing) I finally got a new OXO Good Grips Green Salad Spinner Dont Pat Your Lettuce  Use a Salad Spinner in a cool retro Lime green.  Over the summer my 2 year old threw my old one off the counter (which I had 9 years!)  Yes, that’s how long I’ve been married icon smile Dont Pat Your Lettuce  Use a Salad Spinner  Silly me thought my salad spinner was something I could live without.

BUT I was WRONG and tired of having too wet uncrisp lettuce! So, I purchased a new updated one with an Amazon Gift Card I had.

Washing your lettuce and vegetables is an important step in any salad preparation which many of us may be tempted to skip because it’s a pain in the patootie.  Remember friends, washing helps avoid food born illnesses, exposure to any pesticides and gets rid of that gritty dirt (especially on spinach.)

If you have never used a salad spinner- briefly- this is how it works.
1) This OXO salad spinner has a mesh basket that you first rinse the lettuce under running water.
2) You then shake out the basket and place into the salad spinner.  Pump up the gadget to spin off the excess water (see video) and then push the stop button.
3) Wa La! perfectly dry and crispy lettuce for you salad or sandwich.
BONUS:- just store any extra lettuce right in he fridge inside the spinner.  It stays crispy and fresh!
