THE PERFECT SALAD

THE PERFECT SALAD

 This salad was a progression to perfection.  I’m really liking the French way of first whisking the vinegrette directly in the salad bowl, then layering beginning with the least fragile ingredients and topping with the greens.  When it comes time to serve, just toss. The greens will have stayed separate from the vinegrette and not all wilty and soppy Perfect!
