Simple and satisfying, a salad made with Romaine lettuce and crushed walnuts may be enhanced with Cheddar cheese to make a nutritious luncheon dish.  The best dressing for M-J’s Walnut-Romaine salad recipe is a honey-laced vinaigrette.  For an elegant salad-design, toss the lettuce in dressing before arranging the crushed walnuts around the edges of your bowl. ©M-J de MestertonRomaine__Elegant_Salad_Copyright_M-J_de_Mesterton

Elegant Red Cabbage Salad

Red or purple cabbage, sliced thinly and mixed with feta cheese, yellow tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar, cilantro and salt makes an elegant salad. I grew this purple cabbage and the yellow pear tomatoes. It is best to let this dressed salad sit at room temperature for at least an hour, so that the cabbage softens a little.

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.
