I’ve been waiting for this day. This day when I finally used my new OXO International Good Grips Little Salad and Herb Spinner. Right away, the size is perfect. My little two-person household doesn’t eat much salad so using a full head of lettuce or other greens can lead to waste.

Last week I bought a set of 4 oz. canning jars. They’re the perfect serving size for us. For desserts, a special beverage, and yes, even salads. I’ve been planning to make my Feta, Tomato and Spinach Salad since I bought them. Enter the ease of OXO.

I started with just four simple ingredients: fresh spinach, crumbled Feta cheese, cherry Roma tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil.

After tearing a handful of spinach leaves, I rinsed them in the basket then spun them. This spinner is unlike any other I’ve experienced. It’s so small and easy to manage. The solid push-down button works so lightly, so easily. And the non-skid base made it worry-free. [You try juggling a camera in one hand and a salad spinner in the other! OXO makes it easy!]

After just a few quick pumps of the spinner, I removed the basket and dumped out the water. The spinach leaves were fresh, vibrant, and ready to go into the Spinner Bowl.

Next I cut the tomatoes. With small cherry Romas, it was quick and easy. Just look at those juices pouring out!

Then I topped it with the crumbled Feta cheese and tossed.

Now comes the part I’d been waiting for: the “canning” of my salad. I put in several spoonfuls, making sure that each serving had a delicious mix of the spinach, Feta, and tomatoes. I then lightly drizzled each jar with the olive oil.

Doesn’t that just scream “flavor”?!

I now have six mini salads in my refrigerator, just waiting to be eaten! How simple is that?

A little added dash of salt, pepper, and maybe a few croutons, and you’ve got yourself a salad!

Thanks, OXO!
