A salad spinner is one of those things that I’ve always wanted but for some reason, money that could have gone towards a salad spinner seemed to go towards the six kinds of cheese I walk out of the grocery store with on a regular basis
…you think I’m exaggerating.
So why use a salad spinner? Well, you have to wash your greens. I even wash the organic stuff that comes pre-washed. You especially need to wash greens you get from the farmer’s market, because sometimes they come straight from the dirt (this is a good thing!).
I washed my baby kale in the colander that comes with the salad spinner. After washing, I put it back into the salad spinner, then pump the handy button on top to spin the greens. The water flies off and into the bowl.
Handy features of this salad spinner include:
- non-slip bottom
- easy cleaning lid
- I hear you can use this for fruit too.
Ta-da! Dry greens!
The best part? You can store your greens right in this bowl, and it will help keep them fresh longer.
Now you want one, right? I know you do!
