“I like to call this a spoon salad,” Nicolaus Balla says, “because it’s like a soup and a salad in one dish. You want to eat it with a spoon and a huge loaf of bread next to you.” He lets the salami and cheese sit with the vegetables for at least an hour. This creates juices at the bottom of the bowl—perfect for dipping bread. Slideshow: Main-Course Salads
