5 Formerly Trendy Foods (Slideshow)

  • 2 of 6

 

1. Pasta Salad.

Though it was long a staple at delis and barbecues across the United States, pasta salad exploded in the 1980s. But it wasn’t just any regular pasta salad – new pasta shapes, new veggies, new cheeses, and new flavors all took over this once humble dish.

Other trendy salads: iceberg lettuce wedge salad, watergate salad, panzanella, caesar salad.

Sad that some of these healthy staples like veggies & quinoa are.thought of as "fad" foods. They should he part of everyone's regular diet. Pesto although healthy, seemingly is now doused w/ heavy.cream in all reciepe's at restraints these days. They should go back to the real originally recipe. KT tastes better & is better for you too!

I'm not much for trends of any kind. If I like it and it's good for me then I eat it, wear it or embrace it.
