The Threshold Coupe Salad Plate Set of 4 in White provides a bright, clean slate from which your starter course can come to life. There's something to be said for the quiet beauty of white porcelain. It's perfectly stylish and minimal while showcasing salad, sushi or canapés. This neutral look builds intrigue when paired with alabaster linens and candles, or let it play the supporting role amongst primaries or patterns. Dishwasher safe.
Call me cheap, but Corelle is awesome. Not only is it break/chip resistant, it also doesn't fade. It's relatively cheap, it fits better than most plates in your cabinet, AND it comes in neutral colors so you can use both for everyday and holiday use.
For Pillowy Dinner Rolls, start with the recipe for Our Favorite Buttermilk Biscuit then, cut in 1/2 cup cold shortening instead of cold butter. You'll get a soft biscuit that stays tender, even when cool. Plus, shortening has a neutral flavor that will complement anything on your dinner plate.
