To have ready, dry and crisp greens for your salads.
Always wash all salad greens as soon as possible after
they are purchased. Dry them well, and store in a plastic bag with a
soft, white paper towel to absorb any extra moisture.
All root vegetables should be washed before peeling. Rinse them again after peeling.
For sweeter and crisper salad onions, soak onion slices in ice water for 30 minutes. Drain well and pat dry.
