Are you 40+ weeks pregnant and eager to go into labor? You might want to nosh on this legendary salad.
You’ve probably heard about certain things that can help you get that baby out if your due date has already come and gone: Spicy food, sex, dancing…these things are all safe and enjoyable, so they’re probably worth a try.
But what happens when you’ve exhausted all those tried and true options and there’s still no sign of your little babe? You might want to a try a similarly safe, simple solution to get him or her out, and that’s where this famed salad comes into play. California restaurant Caioti Pizza Cafe serves up the salad, so unfortunately not every preggo can get her hands on it. But, the more important question is: Does this salad—made of watercress, romaine, walnuts, and pasteurized gorgonzola, along with a secret dressing blend—actually have any labor-inducing powers?
According to Carson Daly‘s wife, it just might. Siri Daly tried noshing on the salad while she was waiting on her daughter, Etta. “It was my due date, so needless to say I was ready for her to come out,” Siri told TODAY. “I did start experiencing mild contractions within a few hours of eating it, and Etta was born two days later. The salad itself was tasty but what I really remember was the dressing, It had a very strong flavor—like perhaps it was laced with castor oil or Pitocin.”
