Caesar salad dressing

Caesar salad dressing

Make a rich and creamy caesar dressing to perk up lettuce, drizzle over cooked greens or enjoy as a tangy dip with crudités


  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 anchovies in oil
  • 15g parmesan
  • 5 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
Crush the garlic to a paste using a pestle and mortar, then mash in the anchovies – you can also do this with the edge of a knife on a chopping board. Spoon into a bowl and finely grate in the parmesan, then stir in the mayonnaise and vinegar. The dressing should be the consistency of yogurt – if it is thicker, stir in a few drops of water to loosen it. Will keep chilled for three hours.

Caesar salad wrap

Caesar salad wrap

Use leftovers from our garlic & parmesan breaded chicken with quick giardiniera to make this easy caesar wrap. It makes a great lunch on busy days


  • 1 small garlic clove, or 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 2 anchovies in oil
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 15g parmesan, grated
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp giardiniera pickling liquid
  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 1 leftover garlic & parmesan breaded chicken breast, sliced (see recipe below)
  • 1 romaine lettuce, roughly chopped
  • 75g leftover giardiniera, roughly chopped

Bash together the garlic and anchovies using a pestle and mortar to create a thick paste. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the mayonnaise, parmesan, mustard and a splash of the leftover giardiniera pickling liquid. Season with salt, pepper and a bit more pickling liquid, if needed.

Spread the dressing over the tortillas, leaving a border, then dot over the sliced chicken leftovers, lettuce and the leftover drained giardiniera. Wrap up tightly, folding the ends in so everything stays in place.

Put the flour and yogurt in separate bowls and stir the milk into the yogurt. Combine the breadcrumbs, garlic, parmesan and herbs along with a large pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl.

Put the chicken breasts between two sheets of baking parchment and lightly bash with a rolling pin to around 1cm thick. Dip in the flour, then the yogurt, then the crumbs, pressing them in to stick. Put on a large oiled baking tray and drizzle over the remaining oil. Bake for 20-25 mins until cooked through and golden. Spoon over some of the giardiniera and serve with boiled new potatoes, if you like. The chicken and giardiniera will keep chilled for two days.

How To Apply For Teaching Assistant Jobs

How To Apply For Teaching Assistant Jobs

The Department of Basic Education recently conducted a hiring spree, hiring young, unemployed, and qualified people to become education and school assistants(Teaching assistant jobs). The process resulted in nearly 300,000 unemployed youth finding lucrative work at government schools.

Who Can Apply For a Teaching Assistant Job?

The purpose of the Department of Teaching’s assistant job drive is to hire unemployed youth. For this reason, only those between 18 and 35 years of age can apply. Furthermore, applicants will have to have a National Senior Certificate (Matric) and not be receiving any government grant or assistance or in university, college, or currently receiving other training.

If you meet these criteria and are placed at a school, you will be required to provide additional information to substantiate your qualifications and prove that you are a good candidate for the job. Then, once that information is received, you’ll be employed by the school for five months, where you’ll have the opportunity to receive training that can lead to opportunities in the future.

What Areas Can You Expect to Receive Training On?

While you’re in the five-month program, you will be assigned a position where you’ll receive training on. These are the available positions according to the DBE:

ICT Support

Your responsibilities may include troubleshooting IT issues and uploading educational content on learners’ and teachers’ devices, among other IT-related duties.

Child and Youth Care Work

If you’re hired as a child and youth care worker, your function will be to provide psychosocial support to learners.

Reading Champions

Your job as a reading champion is to improve reading and literacy rates among learners.

Infrastructure Maintenance

Those employed in infrastructure maintenance will become handymen at schools and be provided with training to ensure they provide good quality work.

Sports and Enrichment Agents

Your job will be to assist schools with sports and cultural activities. You will have to be fit and interested in sports.

Step by Step Guide to Apply for Teaching Assistant Jobs

If you meet the necessary criteria, you will only be able to apply online for a job as no walk-in applications will be processed.

From there, the system will connect you to a school that needs a teaching assistant job.

Besides, because the government plans to make this an annual opportunity, you can follow the three steps outlined below for any future phases for education assistant applications.

Step 1: Visit

To get access to the teaching assistant jobs, you will need to visit as it forms part of the Presidential Youth Employment Initiative to enable the youth to find jobs.

The website is free to access from Rain, Vodacom, Cell C, MTN, and Telkom, which means you don’t need data to apply.

Step 2: Register For An Account

If you have never registered for SAYouth before, you will need to register for an account. 

Fill in your ID number, name, surname, and cell phone number. You can also fill in your Whatsapp number and email address if you have one.

Then you’ll be asked a series of questions that shouldn’t take more than five minutes to complete. Answering these questions honestly is critical as they will determine the opportunities you have access to and where those opportunities are located.

Step 3: Apply for Available Jobs

When you’re on the website, you will be redirected to the opportunities that match your profile. This will include the teaching Assistant and General Assistant jobs but can also include other opportunities. You can start applying for these jobs or improve your profile by uploading a CV or adding other qualifications to your profile.

What Happens if You Are Shortlisted for a Teaching Assistant Job?

Once you’ve applied for the Teaching Assistant Job, the Department of Education encourages you to keep your phone with you until the process is over. The reason for this is that you may receive an SMS notifying you that you have been shortlisted. 

And if you are shortlisted, you have a short window to provide supporting documents to ensure that you get the job. So, if you get an SMS or phone call that you have been shortlisted, be sure you send through the following supporting documents.

Upload Your CV

To ensure you have the skills necessary to work in one of the available roles, the DBE requires that you provide a CV. If you don’t have much work experience, your CV can include sections detailing your core competencies, systems you’re familiar with, and soft skills like being self-motivated, hard-working, willing to learn, etc.

Provide Written Testimonials

The Department of Basic Education also requires that candidates provide testimonials (references) from reputable sources. This testimonial could be a letter of recommendation from a former school teacher or principal, a church leader or a chief. 

Submit a Police Clearance Certificate

It’s integral that you submit a police clearance certificate to secure the job, as the Department wants to ensure that candidates don’t pose a threat to the school or learners. 

To get a Police Clearance Certificate, you will need to visit your local SAPS, get your fingerprints taken and complete an application form. You will also need to pay a R150 fee. From there, your application form will be sent to the SAPS headquarters in Pretoria, and your Police Clearance Certificate will be mailed to the SAPS where you applied.

Get an Affidavit to Show You Don’t Have A Criminal Record

It can take a few weeks to get a police clearance certificate, so while you wait to receive it, visit your local police station and request an affidavit stating you don’t have a criminal record. To expedite the process, you can request an affidavit while you’re getting your fingerprints taken for the PCC. The Department of Basic Education should accept the affidavit, but you can explain that it would take you a few weeks to get the PCC, which is why you are submitting an affidavit as a placeholder.

Submit a Certified Copy of your Matric Certificate and ID

The final documents you need to submit are certified copies of your matric certificate and ID. 

After you have submitted these documents, you may be contacted for an in-person – or telephonic – interview. The purpose of these interviews is to ensure you’re a good fit for the school. 

Can I Choose The School I Apply To?

To ensure every applicant has the opportunity to work in their community, the school you are shortlisted to will be based on your location and skills. This means you’re unable to select the school where you want to work. Instead, the DBE will find schools that require your skills. 

how does exercise improve muscle strength

When you exercise, your muscles are forced to work harder than they do during everyday activities. This stimulates your muscles to adapt and become stronger. Here are the ways in which exercise can improve muscle strength:

how does exercise improve muscle strength

1. Muscle fiber recruitment: When you perform an exercise, your body recruits muscle fibers to perform the movement. Over time, this can lead to an increase in the number of muscle fibers that are recruited, which can improve muscle strength.

2. Muscle hypertrophy: Resistance training or weight lifting can cause micro-damage to your muscle fibers, leading to a process called muscle hypertrophy. This means that the damaged muscle fibers are rebuilt to become larger and stronger, resulting in improved muscle strength.

3. Increased neuromuscular efficiency: Exercise can improve the communication between your brain and your muscles, making your muscles more efficient at working together to perform movements. This can lead to improved muscle strength.

4. Improved muscle endurance: Regular exercise can also improve your muscles' ability to perform work over a longer period of time, which can improve overall muscle strength.

5. Increased bone density: Some forms of exercise, such as weight-bearing exercises like running or weight lifting, can increase bone density. Stronger bones can better support your muscles, allowing you to perform exercises with greater intensity, which can lead to improved muscle strength.

How to Change SASSA SRD Cellphone number 2024

SASSA is no longer allowing people to change their phone number on their website due to a number of reasons, including:

•To prevent fraud and abuse. SASSA has seen an increase in fraudulent applications for the SRD grant, and changing the phone number can be a way for fraudsters to circumvent security measures.
•To improve efficiency. SASSA is processing millions of SRD applications, and allowing people to change their phone number would add to the workload and make it more difficult to process applications quickly.
•To ensure that beneficiaries receive important information. SASSA uses the registered phone number to communicate with beneficiaries about their applications, payments, and other important information. If the phone number is changed, beneficiaries may miss out on important information.

If you need to change your phone number, you can do so by submitting an appeal on the SASSA website. You will need to provide your ID number, the old phone number, and the new phone number. SASSA will review your appeal and make a decision.

Here are few steps on how to appeal a declined SRD application:

•Go to the SASSA website and click on the "Appeals" tab.
•Enter your ID number and the phone number used to apply for the grant.
•Click on the "Send PIN" button.
•Enter the PIN that you received in the SMS.
•Click on the "Submit" button.

SASSA will review your appeal and make a decision.
It is important to know that it may take some time for SASSA to process your appeal. You should continue to check the status of your application on the SASSA SRD website.

Boost Your Heart Health with the Power of Blueberries: A Delicious Path to Wellness

blueberry heart health
blueberry heart health

Blueberries have been found to be beneficial for heart health due to their high content of antioxidants called anthocyanins, which give the berries their deep blue color. 

Here are some ways blueberries may benefit heart health:

Lowering blood pressure: Several studies have found that consuming blueberries can help lower blood pressure, which is a risk factor for heart disease. One study found that consuming blueberries daily for eight weeks led to a significant decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Reducing inflammation: Chronic inflammation is linked to many chronic diseases, including heart disease. Blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties due to their high content of anthocyanins, which may help reduce inflammation and lower the risk of heart disease.

Improving cholesterol levels: High levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol are a risk factor for heart disease. Several studies have found that consuming blueberries can help improve cholesterol levels by lowering LDL cholesterol and increasing HDL (good) cholesterol.

Improving endothelial function: Endothelial dysfunction is a precursor to atherosclerosis, a condition in which plaque builds up in the arteries and can lead to heart disease. Studies have found that consuming blueberries can improve endothelial function, potentially reducing the risk of heart disease.
