This is an irregular feature - both in frequency and oddness - dedicated to a word I came across that I have never previously used.
salmagundi (sahl-mah-GUN-dee) n. 1. a decorative salad-based dish of sliced meats, anchovies, eggs, fruits, and vegetables arranged in rows for contrast and typically served with oil and vinegar;
2. A mixture or assortment; a medley; a potpourri.
Salmagundi came to the English language via the seventeenth century French word salmigondis, which in turn is likely a compound of the French words salemine (“salted food”) and condir (“to season”).
Salmagundi is also part of the title of a satirical 1807 Washington Irving novel, Salmagundi; Or, The Whimwhams & Opinions of Launcelot Langstaff, Esq. and Others. I have never read this text, but if you click on the link the text has been digitized by Google.
