Not long ago, it appears, our forebears thought something edible could be made by suspending vegetables in globs of goo like human slaves in a Matrix. They called it “salad.” Gross. It’s less like food and more like something a subterranean alien would eat in an H.P. Lovecraft story.

And while it seems almost inhuman to attempt this today, I actually found some modern-day recipes that make Jell-o salad sound almost tempting. Possible? See for yourself:
