Rainbow Grilled Cheese

From açaí bowls to Starbucks’ infamous pink drink, Instagram food fads are vast and varied. And they seem to leave the social media scene nearly as quickly as they arrived. They all have at least one thing in common, though, and it has little to do with taste: They’ve got to look good enough to photograph.
