Throwing together a salad is a lot like making scrambled eggs.  Everyone thinks they're a pro, but in reality, almost everyone is doing it wrong.  And chances are, that means you!  even if you think your salads are just fine, thanks, you could probably stand to learn a few tips that could make your bowl o' greens even better.  Here, the common salas crimes you're likely committing - and how to do better.

1.  Washing your greens, but not drying
Washing that fresh romaine, spinach, or arugula is a no-brainer.  (Dirty, sandy salad? No thanks.)  But unless you take the extra step to dry your greens thoroughly, you'll end up with a soggy salad.  And since fat and water don't get along, your dressing won't cling to your greens, either.

So after rinsing, always dry them.  A salad spinner is magic, if you have one.  But if you don't, just place the greens in a single layer on a paper towel, and gently press a second towel on top to soak up the liquid.
