Salad with Mustard and Ketchup

Homer: Pass ketchup. [Bart winds up, slaps it with his knife]
Lisa: [catches it] You’ll have to do better than that tonight, chump.
[Bart hits mustard towards her and she ducks]
Homer: [catches it] Hey! I asked for ketchup! I’m eating salad here.
Marge: I won’t have any aggressive condiment passing in this house.

Homer, eating salad? It happened! While I am glad to see that Homer doesn’t let losing his first choice of dressing, ketchup, deter him from eating something healthy for once, I was less than enthused to try this out myself.

Ingredients:

  • Salad greens (Spring Mix and Spinach)
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard

Directions:

Mix salad with desired condiment of choice. Do NOT mix both condiments together as this is somehow even more disgusting.

Salad-With-Ketchup-and-Mustard

Since Homer had originally wanted ketchup for his salad, that was the first salad I tasted. I had assumed the ketchup salad wouldn’t taste too bad, maybe have like a sweet vinaigrette taste. Nope. Ketchup salad was infinitely worse than mustard salad. Ketchup is semi-sweet and when mixed with the relative bitterness of salad greens it created this really bizarre flavor. I think my brain kept expecting a hamburger patty to show up and pull everything together. I had a similar experience with the mustard, that desire for meat to go with my salad and mustard mix. I actually found the mustard to be almost palatable with the salad at least in comparison to the ketchup. Sorry Homer, if I had to choose I would pick mustard over ketchup as a salad dressing any day.
