This salad was inspired by: http://framed-mylifeonepictureatatime.blogspot.com/2011/05/cucumber-wrap-salad-with-bacon-and-blue.html.
I made my salad a little different because I did not have a way to cut the slices thin enough. I also used what salad items I had on hand. Prepare a single serving of salad and use the cucumber slice as the bowl. Garnish with the crispy bacon. I thought 2 slices of the wide bacon I had was taking away from the look of the bowl so I only used one slice.
Dark green lettuce
4 Radish slices
1 Thinly sliced unpeeled cucumber with seeds showing.
1 slice of crisp bacon
2 Tooth picks
Carefully trim the cucumber slice and form a shape of a bowl and stick with a tooth pick. Add radish slices to keep the cucumber in place. Place a couple of lemon wedges for garnish on the plate.
1 small loaf of sour dough bread
Small sprig of fresh rosemary
1 Teaspoon melted butter
Melt the butter and spread over the top of the bread.
Dice fresh rosemary and sprinkle over the top of the bread
Broil in oven until toasted.
I used a lemon for the salad dressing but a vinaigrette dressing was suggested.
