A simple way to dress up any salad is to create parmesan crisps.
1. Grate your favorite hard cheese. (I recommend parmesan.)
2. Grease/place a silpat on your cookie sheet. Make several little piles of cheese around the cookie sheet.
3. Broil for about 2-4 minutes on high.
4. Take out of oven and let cool.
5. Add atop any salad for a festive flair.
