Keep Your Salads safe from E. Coli

Did you know that the salad you love to eat could threaten your life?  Yup.  That's because some sprouts are contaminated with E. coli and according to research, women who favor raw veggies are more at risk. To make sure that your veggies are E. coli free, wash them with white vinegar.  Vinegar kills 98% of bacteria on vegetables when they are soaked in a diluted solution. And the vinegar residue you eat afterward may help destroy any bacteria that get into your system.

To make the rinse, mix 1 cup distilled white vinegar per gallon of water.  Place the veggies that you want to eat raw in the solution for 2 minutes. You don't have to rinse afterward; the mix is diluted enough it won't leave a strong vinegary taste to your sprouts.

Hi Liza am glad to see someone here, living in the same patch of land with me. I know this trick, i wonder why i don't follow, i just soak vegies for about 30 min in water, sometimes i use some soap on fruit vegetables too before soaking in water. BTW,i prefer vinaigrette than those you used in salad in the photo.
