An Elegant Salad Bowl

I’m in the market for a salad bowl. My reliable ceramic pasta and salad bowl finally gave up the ghost and I’ve been reduced to mixing my greens in a cooking pot or a, heaven help me, plastic thing. Ideally a salad bowl should be able to go from kitchen to table, something that the cooking pot and plastic thingy cannot.

I’ve considered glass (Cooking.com). Elegant, but will it stand up to daily use?

Sophie Conran’s version.

Bamboo (from Branch). Sturdy, sustainable, but not really elegant in my book.

Ceramic (but at USD$295, I’m too hard on ceramic)

And then it hit me. When considering the elegant table, I ask myself… “what would The Architect do?”

Marble or cast stone, Regency era with a bit of architectural interest, of course.

But would the sideboard support it?

What is your most elegant solution to serving a salad?
