The act of tying a turkey with a string is called trussing. This prevents the legs and wings from moving too far away from the main body, which can cause it to cook unevenly. If they are untied, the tips of its legs and wings can burn while the remainder of the bird cooks.
When serving salads to guests, it is a good idea to leave the dressing on the side of the salad rather than on it. Amount and type of dressing are personal tastes, so let your guests dress their own salad. Offer several different types of dressing.
