The secret to making this delightful garnish is soaking them in a salt water solution. The carrot twist has much eye appeal when used in a salad or when placed as a garnish for a sandwich plate. 1. To make this garnish, cut off the tip end of a fat carrot.

2. Follow the same procedure for making the carrot curl, but instead or curling the strip, cut it into 3 inch lengths.

3. Cut a 1 inch slot down the center of each 3 inch strip. Soak these strips in the salt water solution for about 15 minutes. This will soften the strips enough to work with.

4. Insert one end of the strip through the center slot and gently pull it straight back to form the twist. Soak the finished twists in ice water to set the shape.
