Garnish ideas?

hey guys heres whats up. I have to make a molded salad for a competion I am going to be in at the end of the month but it is just such a boring salad to me i need some garnish for it and I really cant think of anything creative that will put me over the top. Any input would be appreciated. thanks!

First, what's in the salad - that might determine the garnish.

OK, I will have to find a picture - but a friend did this whole big garnish thing with a carrot being the trunk of the palm tree - a green pepper cut out (but left whole) to be the leaves, etc. I'll see if I can find anything like it on the internet to show you.

omg that is an amazing idea but there is only one problem I think the competion only allows me a quarter of each pepper. but I would still like to see that anyway and if you have any more ideas.
