Leafy bunches of greens really only stay perky in the fridge for a day or two before they start their rapid decline to limp and unappetizing. You can avoid this altogether by washing them as soon as you bring them home, spinning them dry and stacking the leaves with paper towels in a large freezer bag. Lovely greens for days and days!
But even if they’ve been neglected in your crisper drawer for a while, I’ve discovered a way to restore them to their perfect, shiny-happy selves!
The secret is… treat them like flowers! Use sharp scissors or a knife to cut their stems at an angle, about an inch from the bottom. Then pop them in a glass of water, put them back in the fridge, and they’ll be just like new in a few hours!
