Tip of the Day

Great Garnishes

Today's cooks know garnishes do more than just make food look pretty; they offer flavor, color, texture and even nutrition.

Go beyond parsley and decorate your plate with other garnishes:

  • On salads, try a few rinsed capers, shredded jicama, pomegranate seeds or marigold petals.
  • On soups, try sprigs of herbs, orange peel strips, 1 teaspoon pesto sauce or 1 ounce of avocado (dip in lemon first to keep from browning).
  • On cooked vegetables, consider sprinkling a few toasted pine nuts, stir-fried onion slices, fresh, low-fat grated cheese or chopped pimiento.
  • In drinks, try a mint sprig, scented geranium leaves or berries frozen in ice cubes.
  • With meat, poultry or fish, consider using grilled pineapple, baby beets, salsa in endive or a lettuce cup or sliced radishes.
