Green Onions

It seems quite likely we're going to be subject to hot spells this spring. That means a long salad season ahead and the potential for months of monotonous meals of greens with dressing. Here are two offbeat, nourishing, cooling combinations that require little cooking and contain no added fat. The Borscht Salad served with whole-grain bread makes a good lunch, and the satay can stand alone for supper. BORSCHT SALAD 1 bunch beets, stems removed 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt 1 small clove garlic 1/4 cup minced green onions, white part only Juice of 1/2 lemon 1/4 cup orange juice Cook beets in boiling water 40 minutes.

Green onions are believed to be the source of hepatitis A outbreaks that sickened more than 280 people in Georgia and Tennessee last month, health officials said. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration still trying to determine where the onions originated, said Richard Quartarone, a spokesman for the Georgia Division of Public Health. Georgia typically sees about 50 cases of the infection each month, but 210 people who ate at restaurants in the Atlanta area were sickened in September.
Most people love the day after Thanksgiving for shopping or football games, but I love it for turkey sandwiches. This version of turkey salad is easy enough; just toast some nuts, chop some celery and green onions, mix it with leftover turkey and mayonnaise, and you've got a spread for rolls or sliced bread. If you'd like, use any leftover cranberry sauce on the sandwiches as well. To limit your time in the kitchen the day after, use nuts you've toasted ahead of time.

Dear SOS: Many years ago, a Japanese restaurant in Gardena (which has since closed) made a very tasty flank-steak dish called negimaki (beef with onions). It was thin slices of flank steak rolled around green onions with a tempura-style sauce. I have not been able to find it anywhere else, and my Japanese friends can't find it in their cookbooks.

"I know of no outdoor exercise which will yield such splendid results in artistic beauty, in food production and in health and happiness, as a backyard garden. One literally revels in the closeness to the soil." So began a May 9, 1926, article on the "Care of the Body" page in the Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine. To further celebrate the virtues of working hand to spade, several recipes for vegetable stews ran alongside.
