I love to use fresh organic spring greens to make a nice salad from time to time, but one thing that I don’t like going to the refrigerator and finding that my once beautiful spring greens aren’t so lovely anymore. In fact, they’ve gotten all wilted. And I am sorry to say that I have thrown plenty of spring mix away because it’s gotten wilted.
But, you can save a lot of wilted greens from the compost bin or garbage can with just a few simple steps!
First, you’ll need:
- A large bowl
- Cold water (filtered preferred)
Fill the bowl with water and add ice. Add the greens and allow them to soak for at least 30 minutes (longer is better, so soaking them overnight would be great!)
The greens will absorb the water and will become far more crispy and usable. If you don’t believe me, here’s a video that shows this tips being done as an experiment.
