Bizarre Food Pairings That Will Challenge Your Palate

Some of the best food pairings probably started with a craving for two different dishes that initially didn’t sound too good, yet the combination was oddly intriguing.

Sushi and Ranch Dressing

The sushi world is filled with combinations that many Wester palates may find strange. But this combination takes a Western spin on a Japanese favorite. Maybe it’s the irresistible pairing of the sweet rice and the creamy dressing that leaves people coming back for more.

Adding ranch dressing to an otherwise healthy may not be at the top of a person’s list. However, you can make it healthier by adding more veggies to the rolls, choosing low-sodium soy sauce as an accompaniment, or switching the rice to a brown variety.

Watermelon and Mustard

This combination may be the oddest on the list. However, watermelon and mustard provide essential nutrients, making this a weird yet healthy combination. Watermelon is a good source of potassium, magnesium, and essential vitamins like B6, C, and A. Meanwhile, mustard contains omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and selenium.

Taste-wise, it may only be for the bold, but it does pack a nutrient-filled punch.

Peanut Butter and Pizza

This pairing is the best of both worlds, marrying the salty and slightly sweet flavors into a delectable feast. You just need to be brave enough to try them together. While pizza may not be the healthiest option, adding peanut butter can make it a slightly healthy meal option.

Most people know that peanut butter is rich in fats, but these are the “good” fats that help reduce the risk of heart disease and lower cholesterol. Peanut butter is also packed with protein.

When pairing different kinds of foods, the combinations are endless. Listen to your next craving and create your own unique mixes.
