Before we release our next epic episode of SCIB, here are two delicious and easy salads using one of the summer’s best vegetables: Cabbage.
Nepali Ginger Cabbage Salad
The first salad I made up was completely inspired by my trip to Nepal. You see, in Nepal they don’t really DO salads and if there is some sort of semblance of salad it’s smothered in mayonnaise and that shit makes me want to commit seppuku. So using the ingredients I had on hand I made a badass creation you will love:
1. Cabbage (depends how much salad you want, really)
2. Freshly chopped/grated ginger
3. Chopped cilantro
4. Chopped green onion
5. Tiny limes (perhaps only found in Nepal) or limes to squeeze.
8. Olive oil
9. (Optional if you are feeling fancay) Grated carrots and cucumbers.
As you can see there are no direct amounts because I, simply put, don’t roll like that. Plus, it’s a salad you do it how you like it.
Whole Foods Cabbage Crunch
The second salad is a past obsession I used to devour all the time because it is a staple from the salad bar at Whole Foods. It’s called Cabbage Crunch and I’ve tracked down the recipe which, lucky for all of us, is the EXACT same CC, this one is for 6 servings.
8 cups green cabbage, shredded (1/2 a large head)
1 teaspoon sesame seed, toasted
4 scallions, sliced with some green stems
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
salt, to taste

Back when Layal and I started our own radio show we broadcast through a spotty Internet source at our favorite local beer joint in Beirut.
While hardly anyone in Lebanon had good enough Internet to stream the show, and those outside Lebanon couldn’t rely on the weak stream to listen either, we were lucky enough to have the space, equipment, and support to try our hands at somethin... [more]

You know what, I’m glad the Middle Eastern Gulf region is taking into account all kinds of sexy when it comes to deporting men.
Because the most recent deportee is a 55-year old German man, Rolf Buccholz, internationally known for holding the Guinness World Record in having the most body piercings.

Norwegians are the masters of understatement. When something is gargantuan, they’ll say ‘It’s a bit big’ and when something’s breathtakingly beautiful, they’ll say ‘It’s nice.’ If a friend made a $10 million profit on a business deal, they’d claim he made ‘a bit of money.’
I still don’t understand whether it&... [more]
