Yesterday while surfing the web, I found a recipie for cucumber rolls. I thought to myself, “wow this would be great on a salad”. The excitement of plating food is finding new creative garnishes to use. Edible garnishes are great accommodations to any meal.
The cucumber rolls were easy to make. Once you slice the cucumber on a mandolin, it can be wrapped in different ways. You can wrap it around any vegtable or stuffing you choose. Goat cheese, herbs, and mayonaise, were my choice of filling. I garnished mine with micro greens and tomatoes. Left over cold pesto salmon was used for the protein, but chicken or shrimp would go well too. farro salad was a great addition as well, with watercrest, arugala, and fennel. The salad was a good support to keep the cucumber rolls in place. Using green goddess dressing as garnish made this salad exquisite.
