Chez Elaine: Baby Spinach, Avocado and Endive Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing
Baby Spinach, Avocado and Endive Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing
Another green side dish!  Got this one out of the same magazine - Food & Drink Early Summer 2011
Never did get a picture before it was eaten - but salads are pretty standard.

1/4 cup olive oil
3 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp liquid honey
1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 small garlic clove, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

1 large Belgian endive
1/2 cup mint leaves
8 cups baby spinach (2 L)
1 large ripe but firm avocado, diced
4 oz (125 g) Feta, crumbled

Whisk oil with lime juice, honey, Dijon, garlic, salt and pepper until blended.
Slice endive in half lengthwise.  Cut out and discard core.  Then thinly slice.  Stack mint leaves, then thinly slice.  Place both in a salad bowl along with spinach.  Toss.  Add avocado and feta.
Drizzle with as much dressing as you need to coat.  Toss gently.
Serves 4 to 6

Wild Rice, Barley, Edamame Salad
I love the texture of this salad: the chewiness of the rice and barley, freshness of the cdamame and the soft, creamy melt of the roasted chestnuts. This works well as a quick lunch, but also can be made
ahead as a pot-luck dish or to serve with roast chicken. Combine 3 cups cooked wild rice, 1 e. cooked barley and 1 1/1 c. cooked edamame beans. Add 5 to 6 roasted chestnuts (available shelled and roasted) and toss with a dressing made from 1/4 c. good olive oil (1 like a nice grassy flavoured option), 1 tbsp and 1 tsp liquid honey, 2 tsp white wine vinegar and Vitsp salt (or adjust to taste). The dressing is meant to have a hint of sweetness and will not be terribly acidic, which gives a nice soft flavour to the dish. Salt is important so make sure you check your seasoning. Allow to sit overnight (if possible) to allow flavours to meld and adjust again before serving. Sue Riedl, Special to The Globe and Mail

Beet and Mozzarella Tower Salad
Feb. 19, 2014 | G&M pg. L5 | Sue Riedl.
We may be wistful for tomatoes in the winter months, but one can substitute with earthy, sweet roasted beets in this Caprese-style dish. You can slice the beets and stack them, alternating them with slices of fresh, milky buffalo mozzarella for a simple make-ahead appetizer or colourful winter salad. Alternate golden beets with the red if you can find both. To roast the beets, preheat your oven to 425 F. Wrap the beets tightly (removing any leaves) in foil. One small beet a person is a safe bet; I Wrap two in 'one foil bundle. Bake on a cookie sheet for 45 minutes to an hour or until a knife slides easily in and out of the beet. Allow to cool. Once cooled, the beets’ skin will easily scrape off with a spoon (I wear rubber gloves to avoid staining). Slice them before serving. Stack with the cheese and drizzle with good-quality olive oil, balsamic, finishing with a little bit of dc sel. Serves 4. Sue Riedl, Special to The Globe and Mail

McDonald's to Promote Alternatives to Fries, Soda in Happy Meals -
September 26, 2013 | WSJ | By JULIE JARGON.
McDonald's to Offer Alternatives to Fries, Sodas
Hamburger Chain to Promote Milk, Juice With Happy Meals.

McDonald's Corp. plans to offer customers in its largest markets a choice of side salad, fruit or vegetable in place of French fries in its value meals and to push healthier beverages for its Happy Meals....Chief Executive Don Thompson pointed to past efforts by McDonald's to encourage kids to drink more milk in the mid-2000s, by advertising it more and using containers with vibrant colors. The chain's milk sales in the U.S. have increased by 50% since then, he said.

"We think we can influence the purchase of fruits and veggies," Mr. Thompson said in an interview. "We have a leadership role and we can be part of a solution. The average person eats at McDonald's three times a month."

The changes will be phased in to the 20 markets that represent 85% of McDonald's sales by 2020. Those markets include the U.S., China and the U.K.

Taylor Farms, Big Food Supplier, Grapples With Frequent Recalls -
August 29, 2013 | NYT | By STEPHANIE STROM.

Taylor Farms, the large vegetable producer whose salad mix is being investigated in connection with an outbreak of illness involving hundreds of people in 22 states, has had an unusual number of voluntary recalls for potentially tainted products in the last three years.

The recent investigation of greens used at Olive Garden, Red Lobster and possibly other restaurant chains follows three recalls by Taylor Farm this year. The company initiated three others in 2012 and three in 2011, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

Salad Dressings Are Getting Squeezed -
August 12, 2013 | WSJ |By ANNIE GASPARRO.

Pinnacle Foods said the portfolio it is buying—salad dressing flavors under the Western and Wish-Bone brands—have combined annual sales of about $190 million. It said the brands have "attractive margins" and strong cash flow. Pinnacle said it is looking at efficiencies on the production line that will allow it to boost profit margins, as well as a tax benefit of about $125 million it expects from the acquisition.

Pinnacle said it specializes in "reinvigorating iconic brands." It also owns Aunt Jemima syrup and Duncan Hines baked goods—as well as older brands found in the shrinking center aisles of grocery stores that are putting more focus on fresh items such as produce and meats.

Strawberry cucumber salad - The Globe and Mail

Special to The Globe and Mail

Published Sunday, Jun. 23 2013

Slice one cup of strawberries and set aside. Wash half an English cucumber (you’ll need about 300 grams) and partially peel – you want to leave strips of dark green peel all the way around in a striped pattern. On a mandolin, slice it thinly and set aside. The dark peel will have left a contrasting pattern around the exterior of each cucumber slice. In a medium serving bowl, layer the strawberries and cucumber. Whisk together a light dressing of 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey and 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice. Drizzle the dressing on the salad just before serving.

Why Asian greens are red-hot with gardeners
Jun. 19 2013 | The Globe and Mail |DAVE McGINN.

In Canada, Asian vegetables have become staples at garden centres and seed companies, thanks largely to demographics. With the number of Asian Canadians on the rise, markets are responding to suit their tastes. But the popularity of growing these veggies is hardly limited to those of Asian heritage. Gardeners of all kinds are being drawn to them thanks to the fact that many are quick and easy to grow and offer something more exotic that tomatoes and carrots.

To feed the demand, new farms that specialize in growing Asian vegetables are sprouting up, like Red Pocket Farm in Toronto.

Lettuce Profile - Agricultural Marketing Resource Center
While head (iceberg) lettuce is still the dominant salad green, its consumption decreased slightly from 21 pounds per capita in 2005 to 17 pounds in 2009. Consumption of fresh-market romaine and leaf lettuce increased from 10.6 pounds per capita in 2005 to 11 pounds in 2009. The growing popularity of ready-to-eat packaged salad greens, introduced in the late 1980s, has contributed to the dramatic growth in the amount of romaine, leaf lettuce and spinach available for consumption in the United States. (Amber Waves 2007). Some of the increased popularity of romaine lettuce is due in part to the increased popularity of the Caesar salad. Leaf lettuce consumption has risen largely due to the popularity of salad bars, while both have benefited from the introduction of packaged salads.

Glen William Greenhouses Ltd
. The three producers each grew the same three varieties of lettuce: boston bibb accounting roughly 60% of total production, green leaf 25%, and read leaf 15%. These varieties were considered specialty lettuce.

Second, the producers sold their lettuce directly to large retail stores and restaurants in their areas of operation. The sellers were responsible for delivery of the lettuce to the individual stores. Urban centres seemed to be the areas where hydroponic lettuce of these varieties were sold. The chain stores, like IGA and Sobey's, were the retailers of choice for the growers.

Third, the producers did not now use, nor would they use, wholesalers to sell their lettuce. The principal reason for this was handling problems. The growers did not believe that the wholesalers would take proper care in handling the lettuce and, therefore, retailers would either not buy it, or would only pay a reduced price.

A second reason for not using wholesalers was the growers' concern about losing contact with the retailer, more specifically, the produce manger. The growers felt that contact had to be maintained in order to ensure that retailers carried the product and continued to handle it correctly A third reason for by- passing wholesalers was the 20 percent margin required by the wholesaler. From the grower's perspective, the wholesaler was not worth this cost.

Fourth, each of the growers packaged their lettuce in a similar manner.

Leafy Greens Cause the Most Illnesses—Mushrooms, the Least
January 30, 2013 | Business Week |By Venessa Wong.

The average American eats only 4 pounds of mushrooms each year, compared to 30 lbs. of lettuce.

Also, greens such as lettuce and spinach cause illness more frequently because they are consumed more often, not because they are grown or harvested in a riskier way than other vegetables...In fact, the problem with leafy greens has less to do with farming than with handling. Many were tainted with norovirus, which causes stomach flu, and “were most often contaminated during preparation or service by a sick food handler,” the report found. Infected persons are contagious “from the moment they begin feeling sick until at least three days after they recover” and can spread the virus through vomit and stool, according to the CDC.

A fresh approach to growth
October 13, 2010

In Canada, fresh-cut fruits and vegetables and packaged salads represent nearly 20% of the total produce available in grocery stores. The industry is worth an estimated $14 billion a year in North America.

“Perishable commodities are as unpredictable as the stock market,” Karr says. “It’s a complex business because there are so many variables that are impossible to control, such as weather and growing conditions. In my world, you always need a contingency plan.”
