Meanwhile, start to prep your other ingredients. Peel ginger with a vegetable peeler or spoon and slice as thinly as possible. Slice jalapeño into thin rings and discard stem. Trim root ends from scallions. Starting at root end, cut white and light green parts into 1" pieces. Set aside segments and reserve dark green parts for serving. Use vegetable peeler to remove zest in strips from lime, then cut lime into 4 wedges.
A simple, fresh green salad is the ultimate foil to everything from seared steak to chicken cutlets to delivery pizza. And our favorite version doesn't require a complicated dressing or a bunch of prepped veggies—just cold, crisp lettuce, salt and pepper, and lemon and oil. Here's how to dress a salad the Basically way . Fill a spinner bowl, large bowl, or clean sink basin with cold tap water, and the greens ,and agitate gently to remove grit. Lift out and gently shake off excess water.
Combine 5 Tbsp. butter, remaining ⅓ cup brown sugar, and 3 Tbsp. water in a large heatproof skillet (cast iron is ideal, but you can use any stainless steel skillet that can go in the oven—no plastic handles!). Heat over medium, stirring, until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture to a boil. Cook, without stirring but occasionally swirling skillet, until toffee is thickened and bubbles are slightly slower to pop, about 2 minutes.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
