Many occupational hazards of adult life will be greatly alleviated by massage:

  • aching back and shoulder after a long office stint
  • exhaustion or overstrained muscles from physical labor or excessive exercise
  • circulatory problems from too little exercise by sedentary workers.
Massage can benefit you right down to the cellular level!

Baby Spinach Salad with Grilled Tomato Dressing

Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse

Recipe Summary
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


8 thin slices ciabatta or other Italian bread
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound ripe plum tomatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt and pepper
12 ounces baby spinach, rinsed and spun dry
1 jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
1 small red onion, sliced into thin rings
4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (1 cup)


Preheat the grill to medium-high.

With a pastry brush, lightly coat both sides of the bread with the extra-virgin olive oil.

Place the tomatoes on the grill and roast, turning, until the skin is evenly charred. Remove the tomatoes. Place the bread on the grill and cook, turning, until marked and lightly toasted on both sides, about 2 minutes. Remove from the grill and set aside.

When cool enough to handle, peel and seed the tomatoes.

Place the tomatoes in a blender with the oil, vinegar, and garlic and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place the spinach in a large salad bowl and top with the artichoke hearts and onions. Toss with the dressing to lightly coat. Crumble the blue cheese on top and serve with the toasted bread on the side.
