How to Wash Dark Leafy Greens
Step 1: Submerge greens in a bowl of cold water.
Jostle them around with your fingers for 30-60 seconds to dislodge dirt and debris.
Step 2: Lift the greens up out of the water, shake them off, and place into a colander.
Don’t dump the water through the colander, or else you will be dumping it back on your greens. Dump the water and repeat twice more, or until the water is clear after lifting the greens out.
