How do the pros wash and dry salad greens?

There has to be a trick to it. When I go out to a nice restaurant if I get a salad the greens are never bruised and never damp. But when I make our salads at home (wash by swishing in a bowl of water, dry in the salad spinner and then pat with a paper towel) I either leave the lettuce a little damp (in which case the water dilutes the flavor) or pat the leaves aggressively with towels, which always bruises the leaves.

How do they do it?
