Salad Days Are Over

The contestants are off to shop for the first challenge. Guy asks them to prepare a gourmet salad: "What could be more basic? Just make sure it's the best salad we've ever had." One thing he doesn't tell them until they're running down the aisles is that the market is out of stock on all leafy greens. So it won't be a traditional salad.

What Makes a Good Salad?

The judges expect to see some really well-composed salads from the contestants. "The key to salad is the vinaigrette" says Richard. "We can't have just any boring, girly salads here. We need to really amp it up," says Catherine. Troy agrees: "They need to go for something different."

Cool and Confident

Jessica, a private chef and dietitian, thinks she'll be able to pull off the challenge with her couscous salad with beef tenderloin, citrus fruit and blueberry vinaigrette. Guy says, "When I told you we were out of the leafy greens you didn't seem fazed at all." Jessica responds, "Guy, I'm a dietitian. I cook like this every day." Richard thought her dish "looked ready for a restaurant."

Not Cut Up to Plate

Lenny, an executive chef, picks out beet greens and fennel and decides to do a Southwestern steak salad. He hollows out tomatoes to stuff with the greens and makes two dressings, a peach and a raspberry-jalapeno. Catherine didn't like that she had to put in so much effort for her salad: "Why are you making me work so hard? I just spent 20 minutes cutting up my salad."
