Let the leaves sit a few minutes after you chop them; this helps release beneficial compounds and amplifies the greens' nutritional value. Cooking accomplishes the same thing—cooked greens have a far denser nutritional profile than raw ones. Store greens in a resealable plastic bag with most of the air squeezed out. Keep them in the coldest part of the fridge for no more than a few days.
