Tomato Peel Roses give salad plates, serving platters or dinner plates a touch of color and a bit of artistry. They may be
made a few hours ahead, placed on a wet paper towel in a covered container and refrigerated.
To peel the tomato, use a sharp paring knife. With the stem-end of the tomato down, begin peeling on the smooth end. Cut around
the tomato in a spiral, making a continuous strip about 3/4-inch wide. Do not be concerned if the peel breaks at some points.
To form a rose, roll one end of the peel tightly
to make the center. Loosely but carefully roll the remaining peel around the center. Broken pieces can be worked in. Secure
the bottom of the rose with a wooden toothpick.
