How to Achieve Salad Perfection

Salad greens sometimes reject the dressing, causing it to pool in the bottom of your bowl and ruin your salad. Here's a simple tip to help the dressing cling to your greens — and add more flavor!


To help salad dressing cling to lettuce, first rinse the greens and dry them in a salad spinner. Then place them in a bowl, sprinkle with grated dry cheese (such as Parmesan), and toss to coat. The salad dressing will cling to the cheese and, in turn, to the lettuce. This works with pasta sauce too—toss the cheese with the pasta before adding the sauce.
