Nothing destroys a salad more effectively than wet lettuce. It dilutes the dressing and renders the crispy leaves limp.
The solution is very simple. It’s a $30 investment in a salad spinner. If you don’t already own one, here is the one to get. Spin your lettuce (and herbs) dry and then place your handy spinner in the dishwasher or just rinse.
Easy. Effective. Important.
