Donut Prune Salad

“Place two donuts on a lettuce leaf, fill the donut centers with cottage cheese and then top each donut with a stuffed prune. Place two whole pitted prunes beside the donuts. Serve with mayonnaise.”

Doughnuts and prunes are not the first thing I think of as ingredients for a salad - or even the hundredth. How the hell are you supposed to dunk that in your cup of coffee!

I truly believe these concoctions were developed by throwing darts blindfolded at a wall full of pictures of food items. Then, adding the main ingredient. The one the customer manufacturers. Donuts, Jell-o, Spam, what have you. No human would eat these no matter how desperate. In fact no lifeform on Earth would consider them edible.
