Here’s a very interesting recipe from the Nancy Drew Cookbook: Double Jinx Salad. Very Mysterious. Why would you do this, and how would you eat it?
4 peeled Bartlett pear halves (fresh or canned)
1 tsp. mayonnaise
1 cup cottage cheese
Green food coloring
Crisp lettuce leaves
2 green olives
Mix together mayonnaise, several drops of food coloring, and cottage cheese (too bad there’s no picture). Fill the center of each pear half with this mixture. Put the pear halves together to form whole pears; the cheese mixture should hold the halves in place. Stand pears upright on lettuce leaves. Place green olive on top of each pear. Serves 2.
I may have to try this one. What’s with the olive? Why does the dyed green mixture have to hold the pear halves together? Many mysteries here, but I don’t think any were intended!
Enjoy your weekend.
