The beauty of this salad is how it looks on the plate as well as the combination of ingredients. It is simple to create-all you have to do is assemble the "Tower".
Start with the radicchio leaf at the bottom on the plate. Next put on red tomato slice, then the red onion slice, then the yellow tomato slice, then the lettuce leaf, then the provolone cheese slice, then the basil leaves sticking out from the tower, then the summer squash slice. To keep the tower in place, you can secure with a long toothpick or a sprig of Rosemary with the bottom leaves removed. Drape the yellow pepper circle over the toothpick or rosemary sprig and over the side of the tower.
Use a prepared dressing of your choice such as creamy Italian or zesty vinaigrette, drizzle over the tower.
