A composed salad dinner, as pretty to look at as it is good to eat, can be as light or hearty as you choose, plated individually or prepared on one big, artfully arranged platter and served family style. It’s a way to be fancy without strenuous cooking.


Food Ideas

  • Love to Cook: Seared tuna, roasted spring vegetables and fresh spring greens, plated individually
  • Weeknight Reality: Composed Cobb salad platter (use rotisserie chicken if you’re in a hurry)
  • Need a Miracle: Greek platter with items purchased from the grocery bar or take-out Mediterranean restaurant
