Who says that salad must be served in a salad bowl and tossed?
One of the most exciting things about salad is its versatility. A beautiful and delicious salad can incorporate so many disparate ingredients and the contrast of colors, textures and flavors makes each salad unique.
Today’s salad is about layering a gorgeous vessel with different vegetables and toppings. Its effortless simplicity achieves an elegance that highlights the colorful and flavorful vegetables themselves.
This salad is prepared on a rose gold hammered elongated platter with the ingredients placed in long tiers. The vibrant colors of the romaine lettuce, shredded fresh beets, rainbow peppers and heirloom tomatoes speak for themselves.
romaine lettuce, shredded
raw red beets, peeled and shredded
rainbow peppers, cut into small pieces

Place a layer of shredded romaine lettuce. Top that with a layer of shredded red beets, overlapping the bottom layer so that the romaine lettuce can be viewed from the sides.

Garnish with shredded or sliced parsley and scallions. Drizzle Balsamic Vinaigrette over the salad and serve.
This salad is truly simple to wow!
