I'm looking for a large, *individual-serving sized* salad bowl. Something dishwasher safe. Something that would hold A LOT of salad. Not the more modest salad bowl size reserved for use before the main dish...think bigger. A few more minor specs inside. [more inside]
We will be hosting a dinner and the main dish will be a curry (thai red), with rice as a side. I'd like to serve a salad for the entree, but I would like something light and interesting, not just an ordinary mixed greens salad. I am drawing a blank here... [more inside]
So I found a translucent green worm thing in some salad I was eating: image. The salad leaves are from a friend's garden, so it's entirely possible that I didn't manage to get the worm off when washing the leaves. I'm kind of worried that I might have eaten one or more of its family members without noticing. So: 1) Can I get an ID of the thing? I think the immature form one of those ubiquitous green caterpillars, based on this ask. 2) Do I need to drink ipecac/see a doctor? If so, how urgently?

I joined a CSA program for the summer and or first pickup has so much lettuce I don't think I cold possibly eat it all this week. What can I do with it besides make salads and put it in sandwiches? Preserving counts! I just don't want to waste anything.
