What can I use to dry my lettuce besides a salad spinner? Salad spinners take up a lot of space and I have a very small kitchen and refrigerator.
What I have always done is wrap my wet lettuce in a clean kitchen towel, walk outdoors, and spin it around over my head or to my side. Works like a charm.
You can lay a few pieces of lettuce at a time on a paper towel then lay another on top of it and gently press them dry. It works great.
Put it in a clean cotton pillow case and twirl around.
The clean drying cloth (for dishes) works. Just take each corner up like a pouch and spin your arm while you are holding it. Do it outside.
Plain old paper towels, or even kitchen towels work very well.
I took some classes from a French chef and he always dried his lettuce by putting it in a new, clean pillowcase and putting it in the wash machine on spin cycle for a few seconds.
