A Food Network recipe for popcorn and Mayo Salad is going viral


HOUSTON (CW39) — How’s this for a new take on “salad?”

There’s a new recipe on the Food Network’s website that’s going viral right now for a salad that uses popcorn and mayo.  And sure, some vegetables — why not?

A starter recipe is called “Crunchy Snap Pea Popcorn Salad.” You pop some popcorn, then sprinkle it with white cheddar flavoring. Then, whip up a bowl of mayo, sour cream, vinegar, sugar and Dijon. Lastly, add snap peas, carrots, celery, and popcorn to the mix.

Some may ask:

Either way, it’s going viral because lots of folks are either curious about it — or they are actually dressing up their own concoction of their own and posting it.

The Food Network host who created this salad is Molly Yeh, and she said it is “riff on an iconic Midwestern dish; it’s so Midwestern, so quirky, and so delicious.”

Most people talking about the recipe on social media believe they’d disagree. Others are braving it with a little sparkle of their own!
