Here is the quick salad platter that I put together in the wee hours of morning for temple Annkut on Diwali.
step 1: First cut all vegetables of your choice in to strips.vegetables I have used are avocado, carrots, cucumber, red green and yellow bell pepper. For avocado sprinkle some lemon juice so it doesn't turn black and looks fresh. By cutting in stripes it easier to dip in to dressing or any dips.
step 2: seperate the leaves of romaine lettuce and layered the plate with it. if you do not have lettuce, you can use cabbage leaves too.
step 3: arrange all vegetable strips on outer side of the plate with some space between each vegetable.
step 4: put some grape tomatoes in the space between the vegetable strips. you can also use grapes, berries instead of cherry tomatoes.
step 4: now layer few more lettuce leaves in the center.
step 5: step by step instructions on how to create tomato rose can be found here. believe me on that, it is SUPER EASY. Top it with tomato rose.
Plase ignore the quality of the pics...it was very early in the morning and before my blogging days :)
