Mmmmm, salad.

The other day I got an email from "Bobbey" with a link to Rachel Ray's Mini Cheeseburger Salad recipe, which I find to be absolutely brilliant. Someone actually made a salad topped with mini-cheeseburgers. It reminds me of that episode of the Simpsons where Marge buys Homer some ice cream topped with mini-cherry pies, and it looks just as ridiculous:

Only 15 Minutes Prep Time!!

I love how people can always find new ways to royally fatten up a salad. It also reminds me of my friend Brent. Once I called him on the phone while he was eating, so I made the usual inquisitions, and the conversation went something like this:

Dan: "What are you eating?"
Brent: "Hotdog salad."
Dan: "..." [confused silence] "What's hotdog salad?"
Brent: "It's chopped up hotdogs in a mustard sauce."
Dan: "Where on earth did you get that recipe?"
Brent: "It's my own invention."
Dan: "What's in the mustard sauce?"
Brent: "Mustard."

Not that I wouldn't eat it, mind you.

Sounds so much healthier when you call it a salad. :-)

That is, of course, gross. But not as gross as I first thought. On first look, I saw an extreme closeup of yellow beans, the top middle bean with a maggot attached to its side.

Somewhat of a relief to know that it's only cheeseburger salad.

I knew "Hot Dog Salad" would one day make it on your blog. I was going to defend myself, but who doesn't love Hot Dogs and mustard? And I didn't have any buns and I will not eat a hot dog on bread or toast.

That's truly disgusting. You could just go to McD's and buy a cheeseburger and a side salad and there you go. And, speaking of Salad oxymorons, you can always go to Applebees and have this: "FRIED CHICKEN SALAD
Chicken fingers on salad greens mixed with cheddar, diced tomatoes and eggs with honey mustard dressing." $6.49 / $8.49

Remember Stacy’s oyster cracker salad? Oyster crackers, cheddar cheese and Ranch dressing, I’d eat that.

I also thought I saw a maggot and read this post with the readiness to turn away and throw up in my waste basket.

So did B cut up the hot dogs, throw them in a bowl and toss them with mustard?

That was it? Nothing else?

Hey, I grew up in the Midwest, where Snickers Salad is a legitimate buffet-table offering. And not as dessert. There are chunks of apple in it! It's fruit!

If you have time to make tiny cheeseburgers, I'm thining that you also have time to make better food choices.

By Blogger Elle Marie, at 10:54 AM  

Yes, that was it. Nothing else. Except I did cut the hot dogs in a diagnal. What's that called "Julien" or something? So it looked fancy.

I read somewhere (back in the early 1990s) that half the caloriees the average American woman consumes are from salad dressing!

mmm, now I want a cobb salad! (egg, bacon, ham and blue cheese!)

You can use fat free Ranch dressing to make it "healthier"??

That picture strongly resembles my last run in with Taco Bell and multiple shots of Tequilla- always a colorfull puke and rally.

On the subject of salads any meat is fair game, it's what you dress it with that determines if it is truly a ghetto masterpiece.

i guess I'm a little spoiled, salads were a work of art at my mom's house, but everything was really...

Now i leave it up to Chili's to decide what's on my salad. I recommend the Boneless Buffalo Chicken Salad.

Yech - no wonder Americans are so fat.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:00 PM  

At first glance I thought it was chunks of raw oysters or something. Gross.

Hot dog salad huh? That's creative.

By Blogger Colleen, at 4:59 PM  


But the cobb salad sounds good, the one from McDonalds is actually not too bad, as long as you get the chicken grilled.

It's hard to find low fat dressing (except for ranch which is GROSS!) in this small southern town where i live. Fat is another food group all together.

And hotdog salad? I eat that all the time, I just thought it was called hotdogs in a bowl, ala mustard. :P

My ex's mother once made him and his dad baloney roast with weenie water THATS gross. The oyster salad sounds like something my husband would eat.

By Anonymous DaphnesTwin, at 9:18 PM  

Try this:

3 hamburger patties, six slices of cheese, fried baloney, 10 pices of bacon.
Cook it, chop it all up, and toss it with lettuce and tomatos.

Normally it would be brimming with fat, but add the lettuce and tomatos, and it's better for you than a workout at the gym!

Brent and I would be such an addition to any potluck.

"Stacy salad"
sunflower seeds
mush up crackers so they are soggy from the dressing,add additional items and enjoy.
I also was famous for my ranch sandwich.That consisted of white bread smeared with ranch...
those were the days...
I love that Brent ate hot dog so goes against his image.
