Here's some stuff to look at just for ideas - I was looking for a lemon flower - but I can't find one (not like the tomato rose flower where you peel the outside - this one is cut out and the middle has a cherry in it.

hmm that could work if i can make it with something else because I only get the following ingredients.

1/2 cucumber
1/4 parsnip
1/4 Yellow pepper
1/4 red pepper
1 grape tomato
1/2 Red onion

Where do you plan to place your garnish? You could take several thin slices of your cuccumber unpeeled, cut almost all the way through, then twist on half one way the other the other way and make a cucumber curl..a few of these might help in garnishing your salad...If allowed on cherry or grape tomatoe will it be in or on your salad, a tiny tomato flower with cucmber curls as it's leaves might work.

it will be to the side of the salad cuz its a small diced molded salad held up by cucumber slices. but I will look up the cucumber curl online and see if its something i can do.

I'm having trouble coming up with things - but I'm not done searching!

You could make a "basket" out of your yellow pepper and with a very sharp knife cut the grape tomatoes zig zag to make little flowers and fill the basket.

Well now, that is a whole different story! So, you can't use anything else! I'd be tempted to make some cucumber fans for sure.

Take a look at this for a suggestion You could use some peeling off of the cucumber as the stem - even if you had to cut the peppers to make a flower.
