These Weird "Salad" Recipes Found in an Old Cookbook Are Plain Ridiculous


Lizzie O'Leary, a contributing editor for The Atlantic, found a "Southern" cookbook from the past with a bunch of salad recipes that, well, don't sound anything like salads at all.

I grew up in a time where TV stations were still broadcasting old Hanna Barbera cartoons and old-timey '50s sitcoms. This gave me a glimpse into a different world.

And while I found there were a lot of cultural and temporal differences that wildly varied from my Muslim, Eastern European upbringing, what struck me as the most weird were the types of food that these strange, black-and-white people ate.
