This is the type of salad I serve for a VIP event. We compose the salads on plates so that each salad is like a painting. At home, I typically toss the salad to get it to the table, but occasionally will surprise my family with miniature pieces of art. With a multiple component salad it is important to know that each ingredient can be done ahead of time and can be stored for several days before serving. You do not need to skip this recipe because it looks complicated. It is actually easy and can be made over several days, if needed.
