Tip of the Week: How to Keep Leafy Greens Fresh Longer

Say no to sad and wilted greens!

.

 

Don’t let your greens go to waste! Exposure to air and moisture will cause vegetables to deteriorate faster than usual, so the key is proper prep and storage.


What to do: Wrap unwashed leafy greens in a paper towel, then place them in plastic bags in your refrigerator. The paper towel will help absorb excess moisture, which prevents your vegetables from rotting quickly. If you want to wash your greens first, make sure to dry them thoroughly in a salad spinner before storing them as instructed.

 

If your greens have already started wilting, it’s time to do damage control. Refresh them by giving them an ice bath! Place your greens in a large bowl of ice water and they should be revived after a couple of minutes.
