Binging with Babish: Overnight Salad from SNL
This video is sponsored by Maker's Mark. To watch the full Mixing with Babish series, head to their UZload channel:
From Colon Blow to Taco Town to Shweddy Balls, SNL is known for its sometimes-temping, often-disgusting food parodies. Most pale in comparison, however, to the Overnight Salad: dripping with mid-century mayonnaise overdose, this send-up of 1950s American "cuisine" has been haunting me since its premiere last spring, and now finally it's here. Along with a practical version, because as it turns out, overnight salads are an actual thing for some reason. Don't forget the quarter (like I did)!

      Hello! I am a culinary student and you're right, when you make an overnight salad like this it doesn't make sense! You actually didn't do it 100% correctly. An overnight salad that you might be familiar with is Cole-Slaw! The principle behind these types of salads is that because the you are coating the vegetables in the dressing you will be able to infuse them with a bit of your flavor. So, if you wanted to do this again I would actually make sure all the veggies are coated evenly and leave out the croutons till the end. Then after a night the flavors will have bolded and make it pretty interesting. I love your youtube channel!

    Can anyone tell me why the Dressing would be better on top than the bottom? When I make a 1 person salad stack to pack for lunch I put the dressing on bottom to keep from spoiling the greens then when I want to eat it just Shake heavily (make sure its covered).

    The best are layered salads with a layer of bacon under the mayo and then your salad stays pretty fresh when you take it to a picnic.

    My grandma makes something similar she calls a "7 layer salad" which is like lettuce, cheese, tomato, bacon, peas, mayo, and eggs. Not in that order. But it's done in the same kind of dish, and served immediately, although it also is better if it sits overnight. But I've never heard of an "overnight" salad.

    Overnight salads are a meal prep thing, but also more of an instagram thing. You prep the salad in a jar so that way you can dump it into a bowl and its like you just made it. But you can get the same effect by just having a secondary thing of dressing instead of combining it. Doing it all together only saves you the extra dishes to deal with, so generally speaking the main benefit is instagram points because like overnight oats they can look pretty in the jar even though the actuall process of eating them is pretty gnarly and not aesthetic

    I had to pause to puke, and after several trips to the bathroom, fruitlessly dry-heave during the course of this video. To sum up how I feel about this, as I'm sure Andrew can say the same, think of the pufferfish eating carrots. Think of that noise. "Æugh"

    I think overnight salads are just prepable ahead of time to save time -- like overnight oats... But also, some salads if you're spicing them/mixing with a sauce/dressing that'd give time to let the flavours mix more? Like potato salad...
