Cookery shows can be really fun to watch, but we have come across some really bizarre moments in the past before that left us scratching our heads. For instance, chef Jamie Oliver making a ‘grape pizza’ or Nigella Lawson pronouncing the word ‘microwave’ like a Harry Potter spell.
Now, chef Molly Yeh from Food Network demonstrated a recipe for a ‘Crunchy Snap Pea Popcorn Salad’, and the unusual dish didn’t seem to go down well with people online. Check it out:
Def going to start adding POPCORN to every single salad now, Molly Yeh! Croutons, who?! 😅🍿🥗

To make the popcorn salad, she starts off by making a dressing consisting of vegetables like peas, carrots, shallots, watercress, and celery leaves whipped up with mayonnaise, sour cream, cider vinegar, sugar, and Dijon mustard. She finally mixes them up with crunchy popcorn, which ends up being soggy.
Many people on Twitter savagely roasted the recipe:
if u bring me out some soggy mayo popcorn i will be going to jail that day. https://t.co/7C9CM29JIo

Others wondered if they were even being serious or if it was a spoof:
No way this is a real recipe. Got to be a parody

EXACTLY!! I was about to freeze that image too! She knew this was some garbage. They probably came up with this after some other recipe fell through 😂
