A salad spinner is a great kitchen tool to help remove excess water from freshly washed greens. But what if you don't have a spinner at home? Start by soaking your greens in a large bowl of ice-cold water; let it sit while the dirt and debris sink to the bottom of the bowl. Pull the greens straight up out of the water and lay them on a clean kitchen towel, then fold the towel and twist the ends so it's fully closed. Spin the wrapped-up towel of greens outside so it mimics what a salad spinner does. Voila! Clean, dry greens.
