The idea here is to serve the individual components on separate platters on a buffet table so guests can build their own salad. We like to use a variety of platters in different shapes and sizes — a white platter for the salmon, a wooden board for the truffled deviled eggs, a tall white compote dish for the tomatoes in olive vinaigrette — to add interest and height to the buffet table.
Start by gently breaking your Butter lettuce into individual leaves and plating them in a large bowl. Serve the remaining ingredients in individual platters and bowls so guests can create their own composed salad. Serve the dressing in a pitcher for easy pouring.
