Health.com Ranks 50 Fattiest Foods in the States

And all Washington got was this Crab Louis Salad?

Now that is fatty.

Earlier this week Health.com came out with a list detailing the fattiest food to hail from each state. Peruse it and you see pictures of a turducken oozing with stuffing, a BLT stacked with one pound of bacon (impressive, Michigan), and of course the Double Down, that fine Kentucky export.

For the State of Washington, h.com picked none other than the Crab Louis Salad. The explanation: “The northwest is known for healthy living. But even Washington hides some gluttonous secrets. Disguised as a healthy option—it is called a salad after all—Crab Louis Salad is a popular dish that packs a surprising amount of fat, mostly because of a mayonnaise-based dressing.

Yawwwn. Surely Seattle is slinging something that packs more fat, no? Like the bacon-wrapped, cheese-topped wieners at Po Dog. Or how about those cholesterol patties at Lunchbox Laboratory.

What is the fattiest fare you’ve had here?
