Spanish town tosses world’s biggest salad

‘A town in southern Spain on Saturday tossed what local officials said was the world’s largest salad, involving 6,700 kilograms (14,740 pounds) of lettuce, tomato, onion, pepper and olives.

It took 20 cooks over three hours to mix all the ingredients needed to make the salad in the town of Pulpi in the province of Almeria, one of Spain’s main fruit and vegetable growing areas.

“Excellent coordination since the beginning made it possible to meet this challenge,” said Lorenzo Navarro, the head of the Association of Businessmen and Storekeepers of Pulpi which organized the event with the town hall.’
