Kitchen Tips

 

  • They must be seasoned and dressed gently;

  • A strong vinaigrette drowns the delicate flavor;

  • For best color, flavor, and freshness, use promptly after purchase;

  • To store, keep refrigerated in plastic bag or containers;

  • For optimum flavor, color and texture, use within three days;

  • They can't sit at all as they get soggy -- they must be put on a dish at the last second; and

  • Rinse before use.
