Making an Elegant Salad, 2009 May 15
When preparing a salad, arrange the components in such a way that they sit in layers or groups. It looks neater this way, and more appealing than the already-tossed salad. Let individual guests mix and dress it in their respective bowls. This idea is a bit like the “composed salad” of old. Pass around the dressing, and perhaps offer a couple of varieties, such as vinaigrette and Roquefort/blue cheese.
