    I had two dishes in a restaurant recently that I enjoyed so much I came home right away and looked for recipes. The first was a salad of mixed greens with orange, walnut and Gorgonzola, very like this one:, the dressing was a ‘maple-walnut’ one, of which I found many versions; this one from the website ‘A Salad for All Seasons’ looked closest: MAPLE WALNUT VINAIGRETTE Serves: 1 CUP ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil ¼ cup of walnut oil 2 Tablespoons of pure maple syrup 3 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard 2 Tablespoons...

    04/09/2017 9:30:32 PM PDT · by boycott · 54 replies ^ | April 09, 2017 | Kevin Litten
    Wal-Mart is recalling packaged salad mixes made by Fresh Express after a dead bat was found inside a box labeled as Organic Marketside Spring Mix, the Miami Herald reported. The recall affects stores in the Southeastern U.S., including Louisiana locations. There is a "minimal" chance of spreading rabies through dead animal body parts in food, the Herald reported, and the bat was being tested for the disease. The Herald reported that two people were eating the salad when they found the dead bat inside, but because of "the deteriorated condition of the bat," the CDC was unable to determine whether...

    CNN has published a stinging fact check of the Trump Administration, exposing several falsehoods in a joke that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made Tuesday about salad dressing. During the afternoon’s White House press briefing, Spicer made a quip about conspiracy theories that U.S. President Donald Trump is an agent of Russian President Vladimir Putin — recruited via blackmail in 2013 — and how the professional journalists who believe this conspiracy might add consumption of “Russian dressing” to their pile of circumstantial evidence. Case closed? Hardly. CNN’s Michelle Krupa dug deep and found that ACKSHUALLY, Russian dressing has no...
  • FLASHBACK: Finally! Monica Lewinsky Is Reportedly Prepared To Detail How She Tossed Bill (tr)

    So Monica Lewinsky is reportedly peddling a memoir about her White House career, promising tawdry details that did not appear in “Monica’s Story,” the 1999 authorized biography authored by Andrew Morton. As reported by the New York Post, the tell-all will describe Bill Clinton’s purported “penchant for kinky sex.” Which means Lewinsky, 39, is prepared to talk about tossing the 42nd president’s salad. While the report prepared by Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr provides a thorough account of Clinton’s sexual encounters with Lewinsky, some salacious details were redacted from the report prior to its release by the House Judiciary Committee. For...

    Following yesterday’s knife attack in Rosh Ha’ayin in which a 30-year-old mother of three was wounded, the Arab Israeli suspect’s mother denies the incident was a terror attack, claiming that the knife her daughter was brandishing was “for making salad." The mother, a resident of the town of Kfar Qassem close to the scene of the attack, told Channel 2 that her daughter wasn’t a terrorist, and decried the media for rushing to judgment. “She’s dieting. She always carries fruit and a knife with her in her bag to make salads,” she said. In the attack, the terrorist had a...

    A multistate outbreak of Listeriosis linked to packaged salad mixes produced by Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. is being investigated by federal, state and local officials. Listeriosis is a rare but serious illness usually caused by food contaminated by the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria, according to the Food and Drug Administration, one of the federal agencies involved in the investigation. The bacteria has been found in salads produced at a Dole facility in Springfield, Ohio. Fifteen people from eight states have been reported infected by the bacteria since July 5. While none of the 15 is from Wisconsin, the Centers for Disease...

    As the world population grows, we have a pressing need to eat better and farm better, and those of us trying to figure out how to do those things have pointed at lots of different foods as problematic. Almonds, for their water use. Corn, for the monoculture. Beef, for its greenhouse gases. In each of those cases, there’s some truth in the finger-pointing, but none of them is a clear-cut villain. There’s one food, though, that has almost nothing going for it. It occupies precious crop acreage, requires fossil fuels to be shipped, refrigerated, around the world, and adds nothing...

Police say they learned the tripped-up trio stole a large bowl of the macaroni and took turns eating it while making their getaway. The suspects were in custody by early Sunday afternoon. All three are charged with burglary, criminal mischief and grand larceny.

    For those watching their weight, choosing a restaurant salad over a fast food burger may not be the wisest idea. A restaurant meal that includes an appetizer, salad entrée and one side can contain an average of 1,494 calories, compared to a greasy McDonald’s Big Mac Extra Value Meal that will set you back 1,130 calories, according to the Journal of Nutrition, Education and Behavior. […] A Burger King Whopper with cheese, for example, has 710 calories. Comparatively, an Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad contains 800 calories and an Applebee’s Cheeseburger will set you back 940 calories. Similarly, Chipotle’s Chicken...

    A sandwich restaurant chain says it's looking into how a dead frog got into a customer's salad in Manhattan Monday. The customer found the small frog in her salad from a Pret A Manger store on 47th Street and Sixth Avenue, according to her colleague Kathryn Lurie, who photographed it and posted it to the photo-sharing app Instagram. Lurie, an editor at The Wall Street Journal, said on Twitter her co-worker wanted to remain anonymous but that "she was pretty shaken, understandably." It's not clear how the frog got into the salad. Pret said in a statement: "Our lettuce is...

The law states officials can only release the identity of businesses if the problem persists, which officials don't believe is happening because of a drop in cases, officials said in a release on Wednesday.

    If you're using fat free dressing on your salad, you're doing it all wrong. According to scientists, you need to eat salad with fat-based dressings to get the most out of the veggies. Having no fat in your salad actually diminishes the benefit from eating vegetables. This sounds a little crazy, right? But yes, even though fat free dressing has less calories than its fatty filled counterpart, you're not getting the full oomph you want when eating vegetables with skinny dressings. Researchers at Purdue University compared salad eating with dressing that had saturated fat, monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat at...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 22, 2011 – Somali pirates killed all four Americans they had held hostage aboard a sailing vessel in the Indian Ocean this morning, U.S. Central Command officials announced. U.S. officials were negotiating with the pirates for the safe return of the captured Americans when the murders took place, officials said. Centcom officials said that in the midst of negotiations, U.S. forces responded to gunfire aboard the S/V Quest. When the forces reached the boat, officials said, they discovered all four hostages had been shot by their captors. Despite immediate steps to provide life-saving care, all four hostages ultimately...
