Salad spoons

Serving gourmet salads in Asian soup spoons is a trendy twist on classic finger food fare—they also look exquisite when presented! Sometimes, all you need is a mouthful of salad for that freshness kick.Preparing salads may be the easiest part of your kitchen time, so serve them up in these spoons and impress your guests with an intricate serving suggestion. Give this celery, lemon and parsley spoon salad a whirl!


Lettuce cups

Another way to serve up greens creatively, lettuce cups are a great idea for all social events! Leaves of iceberg or cos lettuce work splendidly as food holders, and add a fresh crunch to the entree. Top them with finely sliced meat and drizzle with some sauce, or fill them with a spoonful of finely diced, sautéed mushrooms and wrap them into a lettuce dumpling. The combinations are endless, and for a great summery touch, try out these prawn cocktail cups.
