I am a salad girl...I love, love, love salad! I don't love bagged salad, though. In a pinch, it's not that bad...It's just definitely not as fresh, and goes bad too soon. So, I buy whatever salad greens I'm in the mood for and wash them, cut them, and keep them in my handy dandy salad spinner. Seriously, I love this thing. It not only spins all of the water out, but it is a great place to store greens so they stay colorful and crisp. It is also convenient to have the lettuce already washed and ready for a quick lunch or dinner salad.
And...if you have never before tried an English Cucumber (sometimes called Hot House, or seedless)...you are missing out. These little babies don't need to be peeled, and they have the yummiest, freshest flavor. They are definitely more expensive than regular garden cucumbers, but so worth it.
