When I created the salad for this poster, it took 3 days of hard work to get a picture of a salad just right. I wanted bright colors, a variety of ingredients and an airy layered look; I wanted it to dance on the plate. Each picture would look okay but not perfect.

Finally, on the third day I achieved the look I wanted. Fortunately I had also decided to take a "how-to" set of photos too and I thought it would be fun to share them here.

And here we go - the pefect salad. Topped with balsamic vinegar and a little ground pepper, this salad is full of delicious veggies and free of salt and fat from commercial salad dressings.
