Wow! Things have been getting serious around here. Pretty photos, tons of info. But a little light on humor. I think it’s time for another Throwback Thursday. [Note: after doing research for this post, it turned into a bit more work than I expected…but it is truly amazingly disgusting.]
The “Lazy Daisy Salad” comes in many varieties. The most disgusting (and it was hard to pick just one) wins the award because it doesn’t even involved FRESH fruits or vegetables. It’s leftover cooked vegetables covered with mayonnaise. Yes, you read that right. Again, props to “Bad Jelly Blog.” They not only found the recipe…they MADE IT and TRIED IT. Oh, to top it off, that is a cooked egg in the middle for decoration.
The vintage version of the image is available at both the Bad Jelly Blog and on Flickr. As always, please stop by and visit the originals.
As I said, there are multiple varieties.
Another version- without a picture- included fresh fruit, but again they had to smother mayonnaise on it. I found that recipe from “Catholic Courier and Journal” from 1981. I’m ashamed as a Catholic it ever appeared.
Tied for horrible is the version with cream cheese and the version with cottage cheese. Horribly, the cottage cheese version is modern. Find it at “Cooks.com”. The cream cheese version was in a little cookbook/pamphlet put out by Sunkist. Their version included oranges (surprise, surprise) and cream cheese.
A more modern version is actually edible. It includes either fresh or canned fruit topped with either vanilla pudding or Cool Whip. While it might be edible, I’m still not going to ever be featuring it on this blog.
