Food Artistry Zest and Crowns

Zest is the outermost layer of a citrus fruit, which holds many aromatic oils and taste, adding a fruity kick to whatever it garnishes or is mixed with. There are many ways to remove this outer layer, but the most common are creatively called zesting. The simplest way to zest citrus is to use a zester, a tool with very small holes at its top to cut shallow ribbons out of fruit. A vegetable peeler and a box grater can also be used to zest; however, a citrus zester will yield the best results.

Food Artistry Color Greens 

You can serve the salad on a large plate, silver tray, or in a decorative serving bowl. If you don’t have time to prepare your salad dressing, don’t put your bottles of dressing on the table.

Add a splash of color or contrasting texture.

  2. Garnish your salad with an extra touch of color with any of these tropical fruits or vegetables: papaya, star fruit, chayote, yucca, pineapples, plantains, bananas, baby bananas, does, Calabasas, and kumquats.
