Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

Ask The Expert

How do I store loose-leaf salad mixes so that they stay fresh without getting all slimy in the plastic bag?

Wash the greens well under running water- a colander is helpful. Gently shake off as much water as you can then blot the leaves with paper towels, or dry in a salad spinner if you have one. Wrap the whole batch in a couple of paper towels and store in a zip top bag in your refrigerator. Use within 5-7 days. See storage information for other fruits and vegetables.
