But let me tell you something: you ain't seen nothin' yet.
I stumbled upon this next recipe in a hidden chapter of the 1972 Revised WW Program Cookbook entitled "Unusual Fruit Salads". Up until now, I had never seen this creepy little chapter. It was like it had somehow remained hidden from me behind a beaded curtain; like a strange back room filled with forbidden freaky recipes that time had forgotten. But I couldn't resist. I had to go in.
The recipe has no name. It has no list of ingredients. It is merely a 2-sentence blurb describing how to prepare it. I read this blurb and re-read it at least 10 times, just to be sure I wasn't misunderstanding it. So here it is:
For an unusual first course, slice a peeled, ripe banana over shredded lettuce on a chilled salad plate. Sprinkle lightly with lemon juice and cover with 1/4 cup Cocktail Sauce for Seafood.
Are you confused? Because I was confused. Even my fish mold was confused.
To answer your questions:
- Yes. I ate it.
- Yes. I was alone.
- Yes. I am ashamed
- No. It wasn't that bad.
- No. I will never eat it again.
