Say goodbye to ready-made salads and invite your guests to create their very own! A salad bar is a great way to encourage interaction among guests and unique recipes often emerge. For a salad bar that's sure to please, just follow these simple steps!
Liven up your salad bar with color. Use colorful bowls to separate different choices of leafy greens (iceberg, romaine) from their red-headed cousins (beet greens, chicory). Then set out a platter of raw, grilled, and blanched vegetables (bell peppers, olives, beets, corn) to complete the rainbow.
A salad bar is also a great opportunity to serve some unconventional fruits and vegetables. To really make your taste buds pop, put out a bowl of exotic fruit, such as starfruit, cape gooseberries, purple mangosteen, papaya or pomegranate. There's something for everyone!
Bring even more fun to your salad bar by sharing recipes with guests or encouraging guests to share their most unique recipes with the group.
