NAILED IT OR FAILED IT: Secret Ingredient Salad

Apparently this is an "iconic Midwestern dish." We're not so sure.

You think you've seen it all... then a Chef on Food Network comes out with this - Crunchy Snap Pea Popcorn Salad. WHAT!? 

We had to try it out, so on Friday, April 23rd, 2021 during Nailed It Or Failed It on Good Morning Quad Cities, we put our cooking skills to the test... which isn't saying a lot.

We mixed up mayo, sour cream, cider vinegar, sugar, and dijon mustard - it's already getting weird - and then added shredded carrots, celery, and snap peas. Finally, the popcorn - sprinkled with white cheddar seasoning! Mix, mix, mix and VIOLA - Click the video above to see what we thought!  

This week's Cocktail of the Week is a different take on the traditional Bloody Mary. 

Here's what you'll need:

1 bag of carrots (cleaned, but no need to peel)
Lemon Juice
Cholula Hot Sauce
Vodka

Blend one bag of carrots in a blender and strain. 

Fill a cocktail glass with ice, one shot of vodka, one tablespoon of lemon juice, and a splash of hot sauce. Top with carrot juice and garnish with a celery stalk. Enjoy!
