Fresh Mediterranean Salad
Category winner: Sides & Salads."The key to enjoying food is to slow down, take a sip of wine, linger. As an artist, I think presentation is just as important as taste. I like to take the time to plate things nicely—if the salad looks beautiful, it just tastes better." —Michele Zanta, Plantation, Fla.This easy Mediterranean salad goes well with fish, chicken, or beef and can be made ahead of time.
