How To Store Salad Greens

Trick For Preventing Wilted Salad Greens

Whether the star of a salad bowl, thrown in a smoothie, or stacked in a sandwich, greens are a must to have on hand. Buying in bulk saves money, but how frustrating is it when a funky aroma and wilted greens greet you from the crisper drawer? Want your spinach, mesclun, and arugula to last longer? Try this little trick:

Divide your big container of greens into two to four smaller plastic bags. Close the top of each bag lightly with your fist, blow into the bag, and fill it with air (carbon dioxide). Then seal the bag by twisting the top a few times before closing it firmly with a twist tie. Place it in the fridge, and your greens are good to go.

These puffy bags might take up a little bit more room in your fridge, but the loss of space is worth it; your greens will stay bright, crisp, and flavorful, so you can enjoy healthy salads, smoothies, and sandwiches all week long. This tip works for all leafy greens, including herbs; just be sure produce is completely dry before placing them in the plastic bag. Don't worry about wasting plastic bags since these can be washed, air-dried, and reused for next time.
