Make a pretty salad for your holiday table!
Holiday Salad Wreath
2 pounds mixed greens, ready to serve
1 golden beet
1 pack asparagus
1 red pepper
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
extra virgin olive oil
red wine vinegar
balsamic vinegar glaze*
cracked black pepper
Find a large round platter and place a bowl or torte ring in the center while you build the salad. Place the greens around the bowl and build them as high as you can. Slice the red beets and cut them into stars. Slice the golden beets and cut them into diamonds. Place the asparagus in 5 separate groups around the salad. Place the tomatoes next to the asparagus. Sprinkle with fresh cranberries and pomegranate seeds. Make a bow out of the red pepper and place at the six o'clock position. Remove the bowl or torte ring from the center, taking care to keep the center clear. Sprinkle oil and vinegar in the center. Drizzle balsamic vinegar glaze in the center. Sprinkle all with fresh herbs and cracked black pepper.
This salad makes a wonderful center piece. You can serve it family or buffet style and allow guests to serve themselves or you could toss it table side and serve it to everyone.
*Balsamic vinegar glaze is found in the grocery store with the vinegars. It is a syrup made by reducing balsamic vinegar with sugar. It is thick and can be drizzled in the center of the plate. You can omit this ingredient and just add a little more red wine vinegar.
