How to store fresh spinach

fresh baby spinach + how to store it

Ingredient readiness makes healthy homecooking so much easier! Fresh baby spinach is one of those things that’s ALWAYS on hand in my fridge. Its flavor and texture are very mild, and it’s an easy way to add healthy greens to so many dishes. But if you don’t store it right, it can quickly waste away into a slimy mess in the bottom of the veggie drawer!

Here are my tips on storage to keep spinach fresh as long as possible.

Important note: when I show how to use a paper towel for fridge storage, I forgot to mention or show that you also put the lid back on the bin!

Here are some of my favorite ways to use spinach:

As a pizza topper: Gluten-free pizza crust

In these quick, easy mini-fritters.

Paleofied buffalo chicken quesadillas

Crustless make-ahead quiche

Soup

And, of course, spinach salads:

Spinach salad with strawberries

Quinoa and spinach salad with balsamic vinaigrette

Citrus avocado salad with orange vinaigrette

Club salad with creamy vinaigrette
