Salad. Meat Salad.

     A little over a month ago, at the swim team potluck before our the State Championships, my friend Zach brought a dish which could only have emerged from the thickets that are the brain of a teenage boy: meat salad.
     It was a version of what some of my other friends would call a "barnyard massacre," beef, chicken, and pork in one dish.  Zach's version was steak, grilled and sliced into strips, bacon, cut into pieces, and chicken, pan-fried in the bacon grease.  Mine was the same concoction, with spaghetti sauce on the side for dipping.

     Meat salad is, to say the least, a little bit revolting.  It's something about mixing the flesh of different animals.  At the same time, what's better than bacon, or steak, or fried chicken?  What's better than all three together?
     Mom called the meat salad "disgusting," and I agree it is not a great mix of flavors.  But as a novelty, meat salad is something well worth eating, not unlike a stick of deep-fried butter.  Just don't expect the flavor to blow your mind.
