For some, it’s the opening act, for others it’s a perfect closer. Versatile and almost indefinable, Salads can be just about whatever we dream up. Add the word to the end of almost any other food, and you’ve invented a new dish, and perhaps a whole new way of looking at it.
Perhaps the unsung hero of many a meal, the Salad can be the ultimate chameleon-like dish, taking on thousands of forms. A Salad can add focus to a meal, or bust an entire menu wide open.
Whether made with leafy greans, combinations of oils, beans, nuts, vegetables or fruits – or almost any food group you can think of – the salad sets the table – and sometimes, as is the case with so many single-dish salad treats, it’s the whole table.
