    Oops ... one more. This one is my own creation (as far as I know as I've never seen it before)

    Raspberry, Walnut and Green Olive salad
    Dressing
    3 parts oil to 1 part Raspberry vinegar
    Finely chopped walnuts
    Salt (to taste)
    Pinch of sugar

    Salad
    Mixed greens
    Chopped walnuts
    Chopped Green Pimento Olives
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I have made the mock apple pie many times. It uses Ritz crackers instead of apples, spiced and cooked. Sounds yucky but you would swear it was apple pie. A fun thing for April Fools Day.

    I have two recipe's with odd ingredients.

    Fire & Ice Salsa
    Watermelon - small cubes, de-seeded
    1 (or 1/2) Habanera pepper - cleaned of seeds and finely chopped (suggest using latex gloves to do this!)
    tablespoon of finely chopped Cilantro
    Combine and chill. Serve like any salsa with chips.

    The other I don't have the actual recipe, but I remember Mom making a "Mock" Apple Pie as a kid. It used potato chips, no apples. It might have had apple sauce though.

    Oh ... another that I've enjoyed in Thai restaurants many times and have no clue how to make is a soup that is made from Coconut milk, lemon juice, mushrooms and green onions. Delish!!!

    My mom used to make mock apple pie with ritz crackers too.....I had forgotten about that one it really tasted amazingly good.

    The fire and ice salsa looks really good I'm going to try that one for sure.

    My mum also made the mock apple pie, as a child I liked it better than apple pie.

    She also made glazed corned beef that had canned pineapple and cola (or it might have been ginger ale) poured over it. It was supposed to taste like ham, don't know why she just didn't make ham! In those days (sixties) it seems like the whole point was to use the strange ingredients rather than thinking about how it would taste.

    There also used to be recipes for cakes made with tomato soup and with mayonnaise.

    I have made the mock apple pie. I also have the Mashed Potato Spice Cake, Mashed Potato candy and my DGM's red corn cob jelly.

    I've had the pie with ritz crackers ... but my mother made a different one with potato chips.

    I forgot about the tomato soup, she made that and the mayo cake.....I didn't think of the mayonnaise cake as odd ingredients as its major roll was to replace the oil and eggs, it made a very moist cake.

    That first Recipe has waaaaay too much sugar in it. (Pineappe has sugar in it too). Better warn the diabetics. Seriously. No thanks.

    I have a recipe for Pinto Bean Pie that won me a trophy at a pinto bean cookoff many years ago. It's very similar to chocolate pie.

    I've also made Mock Coconut Pie using spaghetti squash instead of coconut. You couldn't tell the difference from the real thing.
