Twitter Is Deeply Confused About This Vintage Prune and Donut Recipe

Doughnut salad? Doughnut mind if I do!

This Twitter user posted a newspaper clipping of a vintage salad recipe made with doughnuts and prunes.

Twitter user and political scientist Paul Fairie discovered a vintage recipe for a prune and cream cheese doughnut salad and shared it with Twitter.

“If this can be a salad, you can be anything,” he tweeted with the newspaper clipping.

The supportive message of “you can be anything” was somewhat overshadowed by the recipe’s name, ingredients, and instructions. Twitter users were deeply confused as to how on Earth this recipe was created and how it constitutes in any way a salad.

Here's my recipe for "ice and whisky salad" - take a glass, fill with whisky. add ice to taste.

I think you need to use a lettuce leaf as a coaster for it to count as salad.

“I think you need to use a lettuce leaf as a coaster for it to count as salad,” responded Twitter user Roger McCarthy.

The salad — made with four doughnuts, four prunes, four lettuce leaves and 1/4 pound of cream cheese — is supposed to feed four. During the salad construction, however, the instructions implore the maker of the salad to assemble it as if it were a sandwich. Twitter was understandably puzzled.

“It's a sandlad,” tweeted Beth Ethier.

Wouldn't it be tidier to just put the prune in the hole?

“Wouldn't it be tidier to just put the prune in the hole?” typed Larry Koch.

One Twitter user even assembled the dish for the internet.

“Guess some can be anything then,” they said in captioning their picture.

This sandwich-salad vintage recipe definitely belongs in the 25 retro recipes you won’t believe people actually made.


My Family’s Traditional Fasnacht Kuechle Recipe

Before you go thinking that you’re getting the Frank family fasnacht kuechle recipe, I’ll let you know this comes from my Irish upbringing.

There was a bit of a heritage identity crisis in my childhood. My mother, the original reduction rebel in my life, would make special cultural culinary creations that didn’t necessarily align with our nationality. Unfortunately the Irish corn beef and cabbage meal was not a crowd-pleaser amongst my four siblings and me (the neighbor kids loved it). However, on Fat Tuesday, we had no problem partaking in the fasnacht festivities. I guess it would make sense that later in life I’d find out I was part German on my dad’s side…and my real German love, my husband.

I’ll now take you back to my early childhood in the late 70’s, early 80’s when my mother would fill up the mini deep frier. I remember sitting on the kitchen table watching over the fryer like it was a magic wishing well….

Note: for those of you who want to make easy peasy fasnachts, there’s a shortcut for you at the end!

This also makes a great hobby for women during times of being stuck at home.
