A salad can really set the tone for a meal. After all, it is one of the first dishes that diners eat. Instead of opting for the traditional salad with lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, and dressing, try something a bit different. Impress your guests at Rittenhouse Claridge with these four salads:
