Inspired by conversations on the FOOD52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun.

Today: Our go-to way to wash greens -- no salad spinner necessary.

The weather is getting greener, and so are our diets: pea shoots, dandelion greens, and arugula (and other springy lettuces!) will join our usual ranks of kale, escarole, and romaine. But before we slice them into salads, toss them with vinaigrette, and eat them by the bushel, we need to wash them first. Watch Kristy demonstrate an easy way to wash your greens, using simply a bowl and a tea towel -- no salad spinner in sight.
