Makeshift Salad Spinner

Martha Stewart Living, July 2008

Beach-house kitchens aren't always fully stocked. If you don't have a salad spinner, roll rinsed greens in a clean towel, hold both ends in one hand, and rapidly spin it outdoors.

    I used to think my mom was nuts when she did this but we use a clean pillowcase. Best spinner ever! ( I've had the dishtowel break apart - my bad) :)

    I love to put my washed greens in a mesh lingerie/laundry bag
