Almond Spinach Salad Recipe Method

For vinaigrette, stir together mustard, garlic, sugar, lemon juice and vinegar in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in olive oil until mixture is smooth and glossy. For candied almonds, preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Place a sheet of well-oiled foil on countertop. Place sugar in a very clean medium saucepan and cover with 2 tablespoons water and lemon juice. Place almonds on a baking sheet and place in oven. Bring sugar and water to a boil, and boil until sugar turns deep golden brown, swirling occasionally to ensure even color. .

Stir in warm almonds, and immediately spread coated almonds onto prepared foil. (Take care not to touch them—caramelized sugar is extremely hot.) Cool completely, then chop roughly or break into small pieces.To assemble salad, place spinach, candied almonds, cranberries and goat cheese in a large bowl. Toss lightly with dressing and serve immediately .

Types of vegetarian diets

When people think about a vegetarian diet, they typically think about a diet that doesn't include meat, poultry or fish. But vegetarian diets can be further categorized into three types: Vegan diets exclude meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products — and foods that contain these products. Lacto-vegetarian diets exclude meat, fish, poultry and eggs, as well as foods that contain them. Dairy products, such as milk, cheese, yogurt and butter, are allowed in a lacto-vegetarian diet. Lacto-ovo vegetarian diets exclude meat, fish and poultry, but allow eggs and dairy products.

A guy walks into a Chinese restaurant with his wife. The waiter approaches, the guy asks for "a table for two". As they are waiting for a table to be prepared, his wife can’t help to notice a fish tank full of beautiful tropical fish. The wife turns to her husband and demands that she wants the same fish brought for her at home. The husband agrees and asks the waiter what the fish are called. The waiter replies "sushi".
