Make two avocado roses, two tomato roses, and two large and two small salmon roses, using directions above. Set aside remaining peeled tomatoes.
In a large bowl, drizzle olive oil over lettuce and sprinkle on salt and garlic powder. Toss to combine. Add 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice and toss again.
Divide greens between two salad plates. Thinly slice peeled tomatoes leftover from tomato roses and arrange on top of the lettuce.
Arrange one avocado rose, one tomato rose, and one large and one small salmon rose on top of each plate. Slide fresh basil leaves under roses to look like flower leaves, if desired.
Squeeze a little additional lemon juice over top of the roses, and garnish plates with slices of fresh lemon from the un-squeezed half.
