Now comes the presentation part of the salads. Begin by lining a moderately shallow dish with the romaine lettuce leaves. Next, line a row each of sliced cucumbers and tomatoes around the dish. In center, place the bowl containing the cucumber-tomato salad. At the top of the bowl at its center, place a large sized tomato that’s cut into halves and deseeded. Now, take a solid colored long serving platter for the spinach salad. Outline the platter with cabbage leaves and place a few spinach leaves on the cabbage leaves. Make bowls out of three differently colored bell peppers and stuff in them the marinated spinach and pepper strips. Arrange the stuffed pepper bowls creatively around the salad platter. Finally, place the bowl of cheese and mayonnaise salad in the middle of the platter with some olive oil drizzled on it.
