      Title: Preparing salad greens
 Categories: Salads, Info
      Yield: 1 Servings
  Start your salad with a good mix of your favorite greens. Place the
  greens in a sink full of cool water and remove any damaged leaves.
  Swish lightly to remove any dirt, then wait a few minutes while the
  dirt settles to the bottom.  Lift the greens into a salad spinner and
  spin dry, or shake them gently in a colander to remove excess water.
  Dressing won't stick to wet leaves, so take extra care to dry the
  greens -- transfer them to a dry tea towel, which you can then roll
  up and keep in the refrigerator until you're ready to make your salad.
  For longer storage of washed greens, place them loosely in a plastic
  bag with a few single sheets of paper towel to absorb extra moisture.
  Loosely tie the end of the bag.
  When you are ready to prepare the salad, tear the greens into
  bite-sized pieces and place them in the salad bowl. We prefer a
  wooden bowl and, like a cast-iron frying pan, keep it seasoned and
  try to avoid using soap to clean it.  We even make the dressing right
  in the bowl, adding the ingredients at the bottom with the greens on
  top, all to be tossed together just before serving.
