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.
