A combination of greens stacked to perfection
1bag packaged lettuce greens
2 ripe, but firm tomatoes
1 onion, peeled and cut into rings
½ cucumber, sliced
1 punnet, sweet corn spears
5ml crushed garlic
salt and coarsely ground black pepper to taste
100ml sunflower or olive oil
15ml finely chopped parsley
5ml crushed chillies
Combine all ingredients and whisk well.
Use an empty tuna or condensed milk tin. Clean and cut out the bottom so that there is an opening on either side. Place the tin on the plate where you want the salad to be. Now stack the salad ingredients layer by layer. Steam sweetcorn spears and keep aside. Remove the tin gently. Place sweetcorn on top. Just before serving drizzle with salad dressing. If the salad is to be served immediately, then drizzle each layer with a little salad dressing. Leftover salad dressing can be refrigerated for later use.
