In today's turbulent economy, we all want to pinch pennies. That's why we recommend keeping an eye out for food recalls: You'll be amazed at the deals you can find on everything from botulism-laced canned goods to top-grade British beef!
Today, we're going to make a delightful salad using romaine lettuce that has been recalled today because of possible E. Coli contamination. We'll top it off with a bit of goat cheese which has been pulled from the shelves due to concerns about Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria which "can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children and others with weakend immune systems." Together, they make the perfect springtime snack for entertaining, or just a quick nosh before a Broadway show.
