A Recipe Sounded So Bad That Robbie John & Toni Made It!

There's this weird recipe that has gone viral because it sounds so bad.

The crazy thing is it's not a recipe from some random Tik Toker or person on Facebook or Instagram, it's a Food Network Recipe.

The problem is that it's a salad that uses popcorn as its main ingredient. Yes, popcorn. With mayo & sour cream.

It's weird. Molly Yeh, who made the recipe, claims it's a Midwest recipe. I'm from Ohio, which is considered Midwest, probably because it's not Northeast... and I have never heard of it. Here is the recipe:

Crunchy Snap Pea Popcorn Salad

1/3 cup popcorn kernels

Vegetable oil, as needed for popping 

White Cheddar popcorn seasoning, for the popcorn 

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

1/4 cup sour cream 

2 tablespoons cider vinegar 

1 tablespoon sugar 

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 

1 shallot, thinly sliced 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

2 cups sugar snap peas, strings removed, cut crosswise into thirds 

1 cup shredded carrot 

1 cup chopped celery plus 1/2 cup tender inner celery leaves 

1 bunch watercress, trimmed and torn into bite-size pieces 


  1. Pop the popcorn in a popcorn popper according to the manufacturer's instructions. While still hot, sprinkle with the white Cheddar popcorn seasoning to taste. Let cool completely. (You should have about 12 cups.)
  2. Whisk the mayonnaise, sour cream, cider vinegar, sugar and Dijon together in a large serving bowl. Stir in the shallot. Season with salt and pepper (remembering that the popcorn will also be salty).
  3. Add the snap peas, carrot and chopped celery and toss to coat. Add the popcorn and toss to coat the kernels in the dressing. Pile the watercress on top and sprinkle with the celery leaves. Serve immediately.

Well, it sounded so weird that we decided to make it this morning. Here's what happened.

So, it didn't really work out for us. Maybe you'll have better luck. CLICK HERE for the recipe AND the video to watch Molly make it.

Good luck!
