Salad as Landscape
Salad as Landscape

Well, some sort of scape, anyway.  There’s foliage for sure, and tomato boulders, and cheese pebbles, and little twigs, and short cucumber pillars.  So maybe it’s architecture, too?

I do like making salads.  It’s fun to have tomatoes that are golden rather than red.  The parsley adds tang as well as texture.  The cheese is another contrasting texture.  The cucumbers add crunch.  Pine nuts add a toasty depth, and I often brown them in a dry skillet before adding them, but I didn’t have any this time.   I probably make salad at least three times a week, and always have homemade dressing, which has evolved over the years.  Now I make a big batch in the blender.  But that’s another [visual?] story.
