Baby greens require special care when washing and preparing them.
We're starting to see our baby greens come up this time of year. What I like to do when I harvest them is wash them and keep them in the refrigerator. They typically can wilt easily and they don't stay crisp. This way, with a little bit of moisture, they will stay fresher for longer, but what's important is that when you wash them, you treat them gently and don't overcrowd your bowl. One of my favorite ways to use baby greens is dressed with a buttermilk chive dressing, which you saw in our last segment of La Pomme de Pin at Home. Click here for instructions on how to make it.
