Decoration of salad «White birch»

The whole design feature is to make a salad,reminiscent of the characteristic color of the birch bark - dark strips on a white background. For starters about strips. In the traditional recipe they are made from soaked prunes. But there are recipes, where the stripes "draw" with black olives. Some particularly sophisticated artists manage to lay them out with black eggs (even from caviar of caviar). And someone uses dark purple basil leaves for this. Now about the background. There are fewer options here. Either you grease the top of the salad with mayonnaise or sour cream, or sprinkle with grated egg whites or light cheese. With the background and stripes figured out. Let's look at the way of lettuce. Any recipe for "White Birch" is a recipe for puff lettuce. And here you can choose one of two ways to feed it. In the first case, the layers are laid in a deep and preferably transparent salad bowl, and the top of the salad is simply decorated with a pattern of birch bark. In the second variant, the layers are laid on a flat dish in the form of a birch log. This salad looks more effective, and it can be supplemented with other ornaments. As additional decorations will suit the leaves of green salad, imitating the curly foliage birches. You can make "grass" in the base of the log, taking dill or parsley for this. You can put mushrooms in the "grass" (real pickled or made from eggs). And on the trunk of our birch log you can start to crawl ladybirds from cherry tomatoes or red bell peppers. In a word, how many artists - so many canvases. But in order to beautifully make a salad, you need to choose his recipe. And each recipe is interesting in its own way.
