Keeping Fresh Herbs and Greens Fresh

Here's a tip that's kind of an add-on to Carrie's great advice. When you get home from the grocery, always wash your herbs and greens before putting them in the fridge. Wrap a paper towel around them while they're still wet, so the paper towel absorbs the extra water. Then store the paper-wrapped greens in a Ziploc bag. The damp paper towel keeps herbs and greens fresh and crisp longer than the plastic bag from the grocery store.

Also, if you have extra minced herbs or salad left over from dinner, you can place a damp paper towel or hand towel over them and then wrap the container in saran wrap. Your salad or herbs will still be fresh the next day.
