Scrolling by Twitter on Sunday night, as one particular is wont to do, I came across a video clip for popcorn salad. (Yes, you browse that appropriately.)
Popcorn is tossed in a mayo-dependent dressing along with carrots, celery, sugar snap peas and other accoutrements. It gave me pause. With my eyebrows raised, I tweeted, “I have lots of concerns about the popcorn salad, but the a single at the forefront is: would not the mayo dressing make the popcorn soggy as it sits?”
But then my brain went to all the coleslaws, egg salads, macaroni salads, potato salads, tuna salads and similar mayo-primarily based salads I grew up feeding on and delight in to this day. This time, the star of the dish just takes place to be popcorn, and what is improper with that?
While I gave the recipe and its creator the advantage of the question, the world wide web doesn’t provide these kinds of leniency and experienced considerably harsher issues to say.
The movie in query is from host Molly Yeh on her Food Network clearly show “Girl Meets Farm,” and the episode showcasing this recipe initial aired April 26, 2020.
Yeh, who rose to fame with her website My Name Is Yeh, grew up in a Chicago suburb, lived in New York Metropolis for a stint to go to Juilliard and then “moved from Brooklyn to a farm on the North Dakota-Minnesota border, exactly where my husband is a fifth-era farmer,” she states on her web site. The segment opens with Yeh saying she’s sharing “a riff on an legendary Midwestern dish.” As a person who invested the to start with 21 yrs of his existence in the location, I’d by no means read of it right up until this weekend.
