The Imperial Salad, A Poem

Salade Imperiale

The mango

     Sweet smell and taste

          Soft, pulpy flesh

               Southeast Asia

                    Grows on Trees

The tomato

     Sweet with a hint of acidity

          Juicy, soft flesh

               North America

                    Grows on bushes

The onion

     Pungent, sharp

          Firm, layered flesh

               Central Asia

                    Grown from bulbs

Slice and dice the ingredients in a large bowl

     Gently add balsamic vinegar

          Season with herbs

               Chill and serve
