Take a look at this "floating net" - a very practical small-space solution. It takes up way less room than a colander, but it gives you plenty of space still to rinse all your fresh produce from the farmers' market.
You can fill it with fruits and veggies, then drop it in a sink full of water to give foods a soak. Then lift it out and let the water drain. It's great for cleaning greens, fruit, and more. If you need it dry faster, take it outside and spin around your head a few times.
It's pretty large - it measures about 14" in diameter and 17" long. Plenty of room to wash all kinds of good things, but it still stores flat.
