Do we really need a recipe to make a salad? Back in the days of the Roman Empire, the first sense of a salad was aptly christened Herba Salata.Herba, meaning greens, or any vegetation foraged from the wildSalata, from the root word, 'sal', meaning saltIn those early days, this would be translated as a fresh green leaf, a tomato, or a radish, adorned with a sprinkle of salt. No recipe required!Fast forward to today.Gone is the notion that a salad is merely a wedge of iceberg lettuce smothered in a pour of 1,000 Island dressing with the optimism of bringing some pizazz to a scatter of tasteless tomatoes. This notion has been tossed.Limitless possibilities and countless combinations set the stage for creativity and adventure.
