I’m going to a Cinco de Mayo thing tonight and, having been chuckling over the related Facebook memes (“you’re not allowed to celebrate if you’ve been chanting ‘build that wall’”), thought it might be silly/fun to come up with some sort of dish made to ‘represent’ the wall.
My thought is that the dish would have three components - the wall itself and something on either side. I was thinking a nice salsa on one side and maybe, like, a beer/cheese dip on the other. I’m not married to either idea.
But what would a decent wall be made of? I need something that can make a freestanding, wall-shaped stack/pile. All three components need to go well together.
My alternate idea was to do fruit salad, making the wall out of cubed chunks of watermelon and doing a mango-based salad on one side and maybe an apple-based one on the other. I hate cutting Watermelon, though, and that’s when I’m not trying for structural integrity.
Here’s the kicker, though. I’ll only have a few hours to shop and prep.
