I was horrified by this recipe when I first laid eyes on it back in March, and I have continued to be horrified by this dish every day since. Sometimes I even wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat dreaming about it.
Without further delay. Here it is. Soak it in. Let its awesomeness wash over you.
This recipe (from The Best of Weight Watchers Magazine, 1974) truly embodies all things Retro WW... fish balls nestled inside a cantaloupe topped with sliced gherkins and generously sprinkled with dehydrated onion flakes.
Here's the thing: All of the components of this dish served separately would be fine. A little mackerel, some cantaloupe, a few gherkins...no problem.
But, when you put them all together in one big scary salad? Thanks, but No Thanks!
