For Appeal To The Appetite
Chill ingredients before mixing - except for molded salads.
Provide tartness in the body of salad or dressing.
Use salad greens other than lettuce sometimes. Have you tried
chicory‚ escarole‚ endive‚ kale‚ spinach‚ dandelion greens‚
romaine‚ watercress‚ and Chinese cabbage?
Sprinkle orange‚ lemon‚ lime‚ or pineapple juice on fruits that
may turn dark - apples‚ peaches‚ and bananas‚ for instance.
For tossed green salads‚ tear greens in fairly large pieces or cut
with scissors. Larger pieces give more body to the salad.
Prevent wilting and sogginess by drying the greens used in
salads‚ draining canned foods well before adding to salad‚ using
just enough salad dressing to moisten. For raw vegetable salads‚
add dressing at the last minute.

TIPS TO THE CARVER
Convention doesn't forbid your standing up to carve‚ so‚ if it's
easier‚ stand up.
The bones get in your way if you don't know where to expect
them; a little investigation tells you just where they are.
Carving is unduly complicated by a dull knife.
And remember the first rule of carving...
"Cut across the grain"
If you cut with the grain‚ long meat fibers give a stringy texture to
the slice. Steaks are the exception.

TIPS TO THE HOSTESS
A large roast can be carved more easily after it stands for about
thirty minutes.
When garnishing‚ don't be overgenerous; leave space for the
work to be done.
Servings cool quickly so plates and platter must be heated.
An inexperienced carver will appreciate a hostess who keeps the
guests' attention diverted from the carving.

HOW TO CARVE TURKEY
1. Remove leg; Hold drumstick firmly‚ pulling gently away from
body. Cut skin between leg and body. Press leg downward
and cut from body. Separate drumstick‚ thigh; slice meat from
each piece.
2. Cut into white meat parallel to wing‚ making a cut deep into
the breast to the body frame‚ as close to the wing as possible.
3. Slice white meat. Beginning at front starting half way up
breast‚ cut thin slices of white meat down to the cut. Continue
until enough meat has been carved for first servings. Carve
more as needed.
