The Saddest Thing You Can Buy in a Grocery Store Is Salad Dressing
J Thoendell stashed this in Food
There is no greater substantiation of the international reputation of American home cooking than pre-bottled salad dressing. A simple vinaigrette, like a classic balsamic, has like three ingredients—not one of which goes bad—and a superior version can be made at home for a small fraction of the price in about fifteen seconds. To save those fifteen seconds, Americans will sacrifice money, flavor, and, frankly, our dignity, and buy pre-made garbage.
Yes, why do Americans buy salad dressing?
I guess if I ask that I also have to ask why Americans buy soda.
That's not food. It's entertainment.
