Molly Yeh’s Midwestern ‘Popcorn Salad’ Recipe Gets Roasted On Twitter

Food Network’s Molly Yeh shared the recipe for “Crunchy Snap Pea Popcorn Salad” that has divided opinion on social media. Although an overwhelming majority seemed to find nothing delectable about the popcorn salad, a few defended the food blogger and the recipe. 

The recipe video, which has gone viral on the microblogging platform with over 1.4 million views, shows Molly whipping up some popcorn salad with peas, carrots, shallots, watercress and celery leaves. The ingredients are tossed through a salad dressing made of mayonnaise, sour cream, cider vinegar, sugar and Dijon mustard.

The video has racked up 1.4 million views on Twitter, where some wondered if the video was a spoof or parody.

“Food Network is just trolling us at this point right?” asked one Twitter user. “Some kind of abomination,” another remarked.

Others pointed out that the salad dressing would turn the popcorn soggy. “I’m so confused. Doesn’t the dressing make the popcorn soggy? How do you even eat this?” a user asked. “‘Soggy popcorn, delicious!’ – Said no one ever!” another quipped.
