Caesar Salad. Smother a little bit of brown lettuce, some mushy tomatoes, and a sad cucumber in Caesar salad dressing and the salad will still taste delicious… just like the flawless dressing it’s swimming in.

Pizza. Even at its worst, pizza will always be bread with melted cheese and some degree of sauce. A slice of pizza (even a sketchy late-night 99-cent slice) has yet to let me down.

Hamburger. You’re at a barbecue or picnic and the potato salad looks like it’s been hanging around for a few years. Always go for the hamburger; put enough ketchup on there and you’ll forget you even had a piece of meat between the buns.

Pasta. You can’t lose with pasta. It doesn’t matter if you (or Olive Garden) forgot to salt the water; just toss it with any kind of sauce and you’ve got an edible meal.

Mac and Cheese. The blue box speaks for itself. Put enough melted cheese (or cheese product) on anything and you’re in the clear.
