Rachtza - Prep Your Greens

Rachtza, Washing and Prepping Your Greens for the Seder

Getting ready for Passover is hectic and overwhelming which is why it is so important to prepare ahead of time as much as possible! One thing that I always like to do before the Passover Seder is wash and store my greens so they are ready for serving. Something I know many people struggle with is storing greens after they have been washed without letting them wilt. It is so frustrating going back into the fridge only to find that the fresh herbs that you bought have gone bad.

Here is a plan to keep you ready for the seder and keep your herbs nice and fresh!

1. Clean your greens by soaking them in a bowl with vegetable soap (or however you feel comfortable cleaning your greens).


2. With a lettuce spinner spin your greens until dry. Once dry, lay out a towel or paper towel and roll up your greens, then place it in a ziploc bag.

3. Store In your refrigerator until you are ready to use your greens!

This simple method should keep your leafy greens as fresh as possible after being washed so that you can be prepared before the holiday begins!
