Salad Towers

After my gig at the farmer's market near my house, I bought a few treats for myself and incorporated them all into one dinner, the second course of which I forgot to photograph before I gobbled it. It was whole wheat rotini with fresh chanterelle mushrooms and a light garlic cream sauce. The first course was this salad:

1 large yellow patty pan squash - sliced in 1/8 inch slices and sauteed until lightly browned
1 smoked or carmelized onion sliced - i did smoked
1 homegrown tomato sliced
1 head bibb lettuce
bleu cheese - melted into more of a sauce if you like
black pepper and sea salt
balsamic vinegar (optional)

layer them in the following order - lettuce leaf, tomato slice, squash slice, cheese - then sprinkle the onions all around.
