"Perfect", I thought, as I dove enthusiastically into the 1972 Revised WW Program Cookbook to search for the perfect fish dish.
As I flipped through the pages and pages of fish recipes, one in particular stood out above all the rest: Pink Lady Salad (fish, potato, and beets). There was no question in my mind that I had to try it.
I am simply going to post the ingredients and let you draw your own conclusions about this one:
- 1 medium apple - cored, peeled and sliced
- 6 oz. fish - boned and flaked
- 3 oz. potato - boiled and diced
- 2 oz. beets - diced
- 2 oz. raw onion - diced
- 1/2 tbsp. diced gherkins
- 1/2 tbsp. drained capers
- salt & pepper
- dash paprika
- 1 tbsp. basic "french dressing" (not from the bottle...oh no...this is an entirely different recipe which I just don't have the energy to go into right now)
Looks even crazier.
Tastes pretty good actually. Why can't all food be pink?
