If you haven’t seen this little trick before then I’m super pleased to be able to be the one to show it to you. One of our issues when we make salads or deal with fresh greens is that we always have way too many and they get all gross after just a few days. So one of the tricks we picked up in Newfoundland (the land of rotten vegetables) is this: the salad roll.
So you take your greens, spinach, lettuce, whatever, and you give it a good wash and a bit of a shake (so that there’s still some water on the leaves).
Then you lay it out in a thin layer along the length of a clean dish towel.
And you roll it up. Not too tightly. But tight enough that the leaves aren’t sliding around in there.
Then you can toss this in the fridge and your greens will last so much longer!
