Cleansing your palate after a rich meal: What do you do?

Last night we had some glorious mussels and shrimp steamed in wine, butter, garlic, shallots and tarragon. They were terrific but, oh so rich. (I froze the leftover liquid to make a sauce in the future.) It wasn't so much the turkey day full stomach coma syndrome that got to me, instead it was the richness of the dish that produced a light headed effect. I often go for a bit of sorbet to cleanse my palate but there wasn't any around. Instead I opted for a leaf of romaine and a couple slices of cucumber sprinkled with kosher salt. It seemed to do the trick. What do you SEaters do to cleanse your palate?
