Keeping Your Salad Crisp, Fresh & Ready

This Sparked Me!

Once a week I make a huge batch of basic salad which includes 2-3 different kinds of lettuce, radishes , onions, red cabbage & sliced carrots. After everything has been washed and chopped, I use a salad spinner. The salad then goes in a zip-lock bag with paper towels which help absorb extra

moisture. The air is squeezed out.. When I'm ready for a salad I add what ever soft ingredients I need to fit my plan...avocado, cucumber, red & yellow peppers, cheese etc. The basic ingredients will stay fresh and crisp for at least a week. The best part though is having salad always ready.

    I just bought a salad spinner - under $10.00 at WalMart. I am living in my RV for the summer and have found it is much easier to clean and spin salads than to wash all the veggies and spread them out in my small counter area to dry. emoticon
