This cooking video has been making the rounds lately. It shows a super-morbidly-obese woman making a very unhealthy macaroni salad.
If you haven’t seen the video I encourage you to watch it:
Here are the ingredients:
-1 can of sweetened condensed milk
-1 pint of real mayonaise
-1 cup of sugar
-1 cup of white vinegar
-1 lb of elbow pasta
-1 green pepper, 3 stalks of celery, 1 large onion, shredded carrots
The salad has 6805 calroies, 358 grams of fat (68 of which are saturated).
Perhaps it was morbid curiosity or just good old fashioned reckless disregard for my health, but I went out today to buy the ingredients to make the salad. I figured that something so monstrously unhealthy has to at least taste good.
I followed the recipe exactly as she instructs in the video. I let it chill but the end result was an oversweet, gloopy waste of calories.
Sara, the fat lady in the video, says the sweetness is balanced out with the tang of vinegar. It’s not. It tastes overly sweet and creamy. Sort of like a dessert, but with chunks of celery, onions and macaroni. Sara says not to worry about all the dressing. She says it’ll be absorbed by the pasta and vegetables. That hasn’t happened yet. Several hours in the fridge and it’s still somewhat soupy.
Say no to Wanda’s Macaroni Salad!
