Simple Tip: How to Keep Lettuce Fresh Longer After reading this and being really tired of tossing spinach or lettuce that doesn't get eaten right away, I'm going to be following this simple suggestion.
Lemon pasta with chicken, spinach & tomatoes // In a skillet over low heat, cook the oil, garlic, and crushed pepper until the oil sizzles (7-10 mins). Add lemon juice, cream, & reserved 3 tbs pasta water to the oil mixture. Cook over medium low heat until it bubbles. Add pasta, zest & 3/4 c. Parmesan to the cream sauce. Add chicken, spinach & tomatoes. Top with remaining cheese.
Washing/ storing kale: Follow same steps as spinach, wash and drain kale leaves. Once excess water has drained, store the leaves in a clean kitchen towel or cloth bag, then place in plastic bag to keep from wilting. Kale is now ready for steaming, sauteing or sliced in salad. Store the leaves pre-cut, if you know how you'll prepare them. Depending how fresh greens are, I have found kale/ collards last up to a week or longer when stored this way. Bags from reuseit.com.
