Another little time bomb…. This book, published in 1955 to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the supermarket, has some of the stranger recipes I’ve encountered. There is, for example, this “Mexican” salad. I suppose it’s the addition of chili powder that provides that south of the border slant?
And here’s a “Japanese” appetizer that would startle most people in that nation. Most people in any nation, come to think of it. Where on earth did this come from?
Then there is this Finnish way with hot dogs…
And finally, a truly strange American salad.
I also found some unexpectedly intriguing recipes in this odd book. I’ll post those tomorrow.
