We are so excited to announce our very first giveaway!
We have been selected by OXO to help spread the word about OXO’s healthy eating tools. OXO is always working to improve their products, so consumer feedback is very important to them, and we are very happy to help. We were chosen to review the Salad Spinner - Green . Seriously, look at her. Isn’t she beautiful!
There couldn’t be a more perfect item for me to review; I pack my husbands lunch with a green salad everyday.
I have never owned a salad spinner before and was very excited to try it.
|All ready to go!|
I don’t know if other people are like this, but I am very particular when it comes to washing my greens. I pull each leaf off and wash and dry each one individually. After washing my lettuce I lay it out on paper towels to absorb the excess moisture, but the lettuce is still wet, which has a tendency to water down the dressing.
With the spinner I found the lettuce is spun completely dry, so I decided to try a little experiment by preparing all my lettuce for the week and storing it in the salad spinner in the refrigerator. This is very convenient and much quicker when you are ready to put together a salad. And let me just say that the lettuce stayed fresh and crispy for over a week!
I love the green color of the spinner, it’s easy to operate with one hand, the no skid feature keeps the bowl steady on the counter-top, the stop button is a cool idea but as far as I’m concerned not necessary. Also, the basket and non-slip bowl can be used separately if you desire.
Now before I give you the details of the giveaway I would like to share a delicious Mexican Caesar Salad recipe with you.
Kim and I like to make this Mexican Caesar Salad for a crowd. The last time we made it was for Nicole’s Bridal Shower. I have also served it at book club with a chicken breast on top to make it a meal.
Here are the ingredients. No measurements needed. Make it as big or as small as you like.
Red Leaf Lettuce
Orange bell pepper
Yellow bell pepper
Grilled corn cut off the cob or a can of corn (juices drained)
Pepitas roasted and salted
El Torito Mexican Caesar dressing
And there you are a beautiful Mexican Caesar Salad. Believe me, there won’t be any left. It will be gone, pasado, nada….
