I remembered an event my friend Heidi of Foodie Crush hosted, where she threw together a salad platter similar to this that was pure genius. Turns out, her idea came Guiliana who works at Delallo, and always makes entertaining seem so effortless. Set out your favorite olives, fresh cheese options, sliced meats, canned chickpeas, and add your favorite greens and veggies. Set out a few salad dressing options and let everyone dig in and choose what they want.
