How to Revive wilted lettuce

I just have time for a quick tip today.

Sometimes salad greens and herbs start to wilt before we have a chance to use them. Often, if you submerge them in a bowl of ice water for a little while they become crisp again and ready to use.

(This doesn't work for greens that are very wilted. I usually chop those up in the blender and add them to soups and sauces.)

Thanks a lot for the tip.

I just now tried it and it worked great. You just saved me from having dinner without a salad.

Thanks for the tip! I accidentally put a new head of romaine lettuce in the fridge (and not in the cripser) last night. Tonight:wilted. I just found your tip and I'm going to try it! :)
