How to Keep Your Greens Fresh

No, I'm not talking about Food Saver. It's a more economical way. My mom uses this to keep her greens green. I've tried this method and it actually keeps your greens good for weeks. So what I do is that when I come home with veggies from the supermarket, I wrap them tightly in paper towels, then seal them up in ziploc bags and toss them into the fridge. Moisture is veggies' worst enemy, so the paper towel helps to soak them up from the veggies.

I found that this works very well for salad, lettuce, and parsley. The best result I've seen was parsley - I used this method on a bunch of parsley about two and a half weeks ago at my fiance's - they're still good!
