I don’t know what the world is coming to when the most pinned image on Pinterest is a picture of a salad dish. One would think there might be more interesting things out there to look at… This salad does looks scrumptous even if it is in a pink bowl sitting on a doily. It is being added to the things I will be eating list. If you go light on the dressing this salad is low-fat, low-carb and makes for a nice summertime lunch.
What I find interesting is the commentary by the Pinterest folks as to why this picture is so popular. They say non-human photos, with color, even saturation and vertical orientation happen to be the most attractive to people. This is good to know when you are sharing photos of food I guess. But… I secretly think the real popularity behind this image has to do with the celebrity power of Ms. Paula Deen who posted it. She says in the story “It’s such an honor to know that a simple, everyday dish of fresh veggies from the garden can be so special to so many people.” I found this statement amusing. What is the world coming to really? Thank you Paula Deen for sharing Aunt Peggy’s photo.
