Salads served in teacups are whimsical and just the right size for a tasting lunch.
If a hectic schedule keeps you out of the kitchen, order an assortment of salads and tea sandwiches from a favorite cafe or delicatessen, and focus on a festive presentation. A colorful collection of teacups and pretty silverware can transform the simplest of salads into an elegant luncheon. Cream pitchers and sugar bowls make terrific containers for dressings and croutons.
Flavor softened butter with finely chopped herbs or fruit preserves, and serve with a basket of hot cornbread and homemade rolls or miniature muffins and biscuits.
