"an impressive sculptured garnish to set on the plate, so simple to do, can be made ahead, covered and refrigerated"
medium-sized red ripe tomatoes, one per person
Using a sharp paring knife, start at the top of the tomato, cutting the skin approximately 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch wide in a continuous unbroken strip, making the cuts jagged and wavy as your knife goes around the tomato.
Coil the tomato, skin side out, around a thin object such as a pencil or chopstick until it resembles a rose flower. Turn it over (upside down) and place one off to the side on each dinner plate and serve with your main entree.
