A Rosy touch to your salad platter

You must have seen this kind of vegi decorations in some buffet dinners or may be at some one's home, ever wondered how this beautiful yet extremely easy rose is made?....................
If yes then hears the answer, its made out of spiral cut tomato peal.
To get a spiral cut peal start pealing the tomato from its top and gradually move in a circular direction towards the side and then bottom in the form of a spiral (a spring like shape ) there should be no breaks in the peal you should get a long spiral strip of the peal, with a little bit of practice u can master this technique .

Put this long strip in a plate and start to spin it, when you finish gathering it around then just turn it up side down. Some times you might get a perfect rose look without even turning it up side down ! There your beautiful red rose is ready to be decorated either on a Salad platter or on top of a dish full of white boiled rice or even over thick yogurt in a bowl or may be in a sandwich plate ,the choice in yours ……be creative…… :)
