  • If you’re using fresh greens, I suggest blotting them with a towel to absorb as much water as possible after you wash them. Then place the greens on a clean kitchen towel and let them air dry until you’re ready to use them - I usually let them air dry for about half an hour. 
  • The vinaigrette dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
