Composed salads are salads made by arranging two or more elements attractively on a plate.They are called composed because the components are arranged on the plate rather than being mixed together. One or more of the elements may be mixed or tossed salads,but the individual mixed salads are arranged on the plate with other components for the final presentation.
Because they are more elaborate and can be substantial in size, composed salads are usually served as main courses or first courses rather than as accompaniments or side dishes.
There are so many kinds of composed salads that guidelines for preparing this category of salad are very general.
