Desert Salad is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

Desert Salad provides a very high amount of health over a short period of time, healing 105 Hit Points at the Survival skill necessary of 55 needed to craft it. It is also one of a minority of food items which provide significant restoration to both the Dehydration and Starvation levels while in Hardcore mode. Though it is not the most filling item in the game, its weight to health ratio make it one of the most efficient foods available. Accordingly, it is also one of the more difficult items to make, due to the rarity of pinyon nuts.

NotesEdit

  • Prior to patch 1.2.0.31x, this item required two barrel cactus fruit and two pinyon nuts in order to be crafted.
  • Based on the in-game item, it seems desert salad also contains common salad greens and tomatoes.
  • Despite the fact one of the ingredients is brahmin steak, which contains radiation, the salad does not increase the player character's radiation level, making it a way of turning irradiated food into a more "healthy" alternative.

Behind the scenesEdit

Desert Salad is a direct reference to the real-world recipe featured in the Fallout game manual, alongside the Mushroom Cloud recipe. Strangely, even though pinto beans are both part of the original recipe and found in-game, it is not part of the recipe.
