Parmesan bowl

The other day there was a free sample issue of "Cuisine" magazine in the mailbox... The very last recipe in the magazine was this parmesan cheese salad basket. They likened it to soup in a bread bowl. Except this is salad in a cheese bowl.

To make it, put a skillet on medium heat and sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese into a circle with lacey edges. Let it cook until the shreds merge and sizzle a bit. Then take it off the heat and cool a few minutes. Carefully lift the cheese round from the pan with a spatula and your fingers, then drape it over the bottom of a glass. Let it cool, then flip onto a plate and fill with salad. Kind of fun, I thought.
