Carmen Salada

We love the Carmen Miranda-esque concept behind Japanese artist Takaya’s creative headwear. The artist affixes clusters of raw vegetables, blossoming flowers and greenery to styled hair, just like a florist would arrange a bunch of flowers, before pruning them with hairdressing scissors — kind of Edward Scissorhands meets your local greengrocer.

But while we love the creativity, we are not quite ready to wear cucumber and broccoli on our heads, so we might stick with this gorgeous Organic Gardener’s Salad with a Citrus Dressing by The Ardent Epicure (below). Combining young rainbow chard, rocket, bell peppers, baby cucumbers and kiwi fruit, lavender flowers and mint leaves, it’s as pretty as it is healthy.
