Something strange is afoot in America, and it appears it's been happening for quite some time. There's a strange game at play, by which desserts convince us that they are actually salads. Apparently this has been happening for quite some time, from the South, to the Midwest, to Utah. Earth to America: "dessert salad" is not actually salad.
You've probably encountered a dessert salad, even if you didn't realize that that's what you were facing. You may have thought it was dessert. You may have thought it was Jell-O. You may have ignored it altogether because it was green and creamy. If you or someone you love actually believes that any of the following count as a salad course, we've got a bowl of arugula to feed you.
