You hate it when you are serving salad and there is still water in your salad and it makes it soggy. You have tried the salad spinner, and still it is soggy.
The next time that you make up your salad, before putting it in the bowl, grab a saucer. Place it upside down in the bowl, then place in your salad fixings.
As the water begins to drip off of your fixings, it will drain to the bottom of the bowl and under the saucer to keep it away from your salad.
