This week the spam folder brought me yet another strange recipe. (Sometimes I think that that sentence should start almost all of these posts.) Strange recipes from the spam folder! Anyway, this week the spam folder brought me a recipe for Orange Dressing.
My mother used to make cornbread dressing every Thanksgiving, but I don’t think that’s what this recipe is. I also have no idea what I’d use this recipe for, I mean I’d never put Orange Dressing on a salad, unless that salad was just a fruit salad, and even then, why would I add this dressing?
That looks kind of like a variant on an orange meringue. Why I’d use that on a salad, okay, so I wouldn’t. In other words, in my admittedly not very broad experience, I have no idea what this would be used for.
Once again, it seems the spam authors pulled this from Mrs Wilson’s Cookbook! Still their favorite cookbook. I went looking through the book and I found reference to using this recipe on an Orange Salad. Now, I like oranges. I don’t love them as much as I love peaches, but they’re okay. I do have a limit on how much orange I’ll eat before it gets to be too much and Orange Salad and Orange Dressing would probably be too much orange.
Until next time, toodles!
