12 Vintage Crimes Against Salad

Salad hasn’t always enjoyed the fresh, tasty and respectful treatment that we give it here at SumoSalad. Oh no, there were dark, dark days when it was mixed with jelly, moulded into shapes, or just plain slabs of lettuce. Salad was to be seen and not tasted.

Join us in marveling at these crimes against salad.

Never forget.

THE JELLY COLLECTION

1. PERFECTION SALAD

Packed with cabbage, sugar and apple juice, how could you say no?

2. LIME CHEESE SALAD

Cheese and lime with grated onion is a weird enough flavour combination, but then they had to add seafood. Oh dear.

3. LIME JELLO SALAD

Not dissimilar to cheese and lime salad, this time with walnuts! There seems to be a common theme of lettuce as presentation garnish rather than actual ingredient. Freshness be gone with you!

4. PIE PLATE SALAD

SOURCE: HTTP://PZRSERVICES.TYPEPAD.COM/VINTAGERECIPES/

SOURCE: HTTP://PZRSERVICES.TYPEPAD.COM/VINTAGERECIPES/

Tinned vegetables in lemon flavoured jelly, then shaped like a pie. What even are you?!

THE LOG COLLECTION

5. GLAZED POTATO SALAD

Oh look a delicious cake….JUST KIDDING. It’s potato salad! Mayonnaise works twice as hard to also look like icing on this solid potato log. Double the mayo = double the fun!

6. CHILLED CELERY LOG

SOURCE: HTTP://WEIGHTWATCHERS1974.TUMBLR.COM/

SOURCE: HTTP://WEIGHTWATCHERS1974.TUMBLR.COM/

Boiled celery surrounds a mixture of mashed cauliflower and capsicum. At least the lettuce leaves are still fresh!

7. SUPER SALAD LOAF

SOURCE: HTTP://PZRSERVICES.TYPEPAD.COM/VINTAGERECIPES/

SOURCE: HTTP://PZRSERVICES.TYPEPAD.COM/VINTAGERECIPES/

If by salad you mean mashed peas and processed meats, then you’re good here. Don’t forget the jelly!

8. FROZEN CHEESE SALAD

SOURCE: HTTP://WEIGHTWATCHERS1974.TUMBLR.COM/

SOURCE: HTTP://WEIGHTWATCHERS1974.TUMBLR.COM/

Two cheeses combine to make this mega log. Add a broccoli garnish and it’s a salad!

THE WTF COLLECTION

9. DEVILLED LETTUCE

Devilled Lettuce

Actual lettuce integrates with this salad! Just make sure you remove half of the lettuce and add a heap of cheese and mayo for a perfectly vintage salad.

10. DECONSTRUCTED CAESAR SALAD

We had to squeeze this in here, although not a vintage recipe, it is ridiculous. A Miami hotel’s interpretation of a Caesar salad, for those days when you just can’t be bothered.

11. SALAD CANDLES

Um. What?

12. LETTUCE BOWLS

SOURCE: HTTP://PZRSERVICES.TYPEPAD.COM/VINTAGERECIPES/

SOURCE: HTTP://PZRSERVICES.TYPEPAD.COM/VINTAGERECIPES/

Another recipe using lettuce as a vessel. This one looks alright until you realise that those are tinned cherries not tomatoes in there. Too far!

Unlike these recipes, we always keep it fresh at SumoSalad! Come visit us and repair your relationship with salad. Check out our menu here!
