Hello! I don't usually post here, but I am in a bind. I'm admittedly terrible in the kitchen, and I'm having Rosh Hashana dinner at the house for the first time. I'm chopping a salad, a very big salad, and I don't have a salad spinner. The pieces are kinda wet. I"m worried about chopping the tomatoes that they're gonna sit in this salad and by the time I serve it at 5:30, it's gonna be one wilty icky thing. Should I take the guts out of the tomato and then chop it, or should I do something else? Sorry I'm a moron about this stuff. thank you for whatever HELP you can provide :-)

My MIL dries the lettuce leaves with papaer towels befre she shreds the lettuce, that may help. Can you hold off on doing the salad til the last thing? or at least wait to do the tomatoes?
