  1. When I unpack my groceries, I always leave the celery, radishes and carrots out in the counter. I cut the celery bottom and top off and then cut it in half. Wash under cold water and store in a large plastic container.
    I do the same procedure for the radishes.
    I peel and cut the carrots and place them a container of water.
    All of the vegetables are placed in the refrigerator.
    So easy for kids to get a snack and this really does save time when I make salad for lunch or dinner.
    The veggies are always crispy and have lots of crunch.
    Change the water every other day.
