TikToker B. Dylan Hollis Cooks Decades-Old Recipes

Mix a teaspoon Back to the future-esque time travel with a dash of culinary curiosity, and what do you get? None other than TikToker from Wyoming B. Dylan Hollis† Hollis has garnered millions of views and followers by recreating obscure recipes from cookbooks dating back decades.

In one of his more popular videos, Hollis takes on ambrosia, the fluffy fruit salad you might see at your next summer barbecue. According to the TikTok phenomenon, ambrosia dates back to 1951 and can be considered a “suspicious salad.”

“Mid-century America has produced a lot of suspicious salads,” explains Hollis in his minute-long video. “Many of those remain connected to the fearful states of Wisconsin and Minnesota. However, Ambrosia may well be the one that started them all. The pioneer, if you will. And today we’re going to see if that’s a good thing.”

The final verdict on this suspicious salad? ‘You know what? I like this one. He’s quite pleasant,’ said Hollis.

After the release of his ambrosial TikTok, many followers were quick to express their familiarity with the salad, saying it was a favorite of their grandmothers. Some of Hollis’ other recipe recreations? Not so much.
