It should come as little surprise that as someone who frequently eats salads that I should read and write about them fairly often as well [1]. When I started reading this book while awaiting a banquet before which I would speak, my fondness for reading a cookbook about salads drew a great deal of interest and critique. I'm not sure why people would think it odd that I would want to read about food, especially as salads present themselves as a healthy sort of food that can be tasty in the hands o ...more

The best salad book you can buy. So creative, yet the ingredients are not crazy out-of-reach for the average person living wherever. Blueberries, feta and mint? Why didn't I think of that? My all-time fave salad in this book is one with shrimp, quick-pickled purple onions (great color!) and black bean salad.

I recommend this cookbook to all my salad-loving friends (since I live in Los Angeles, that means all my friends).

I picked up this book looking for something different and this book provides that variety. Ms. Fox utilizes grains, greens, meats & cheeses outside a typical house salad. Some recipes will be familiar but others are innovative. A good addition to the cookbook shelf of those looking to incorporate more greens into their menus.

Lots of good large full color photos - a must for any cook book.

This book delivers what it promises - very different salad recipes. I made:

- Red oak lettuce with spiced popcorn, drunken cherries and goat gouda
- Watermelon salad with feta cheese, fresh herb leaves and two chiles
- Lentils, grilled radicchio and chorizo
- Tabbouleh with fennel and grapes
- Panzanella di faro (Tuscan bread salad and farro)
- Potato salad and charred poblano peppers, sweet corn and crema

While I don't think that I will put popcorn in salad again, I liked that this cookbook got me to

Shelves: food-fun
Written by the food editor of La Cucina Italiana, one of the best foodie magazines out there, this book offers a lot of inspiration for new twists on preparing a salad that won't easily be side-lined by the main entrée. Indeed, there are plenty of salads here that could serve as the star of the meal, and the base ingredients go way beyond romaine vs. iceberg. It could use a few more photos, but the fact that she dared include a salad recipe that featured popcorn won my heart - something I've alw ...more

I have always wanted to incorporate salads into my daily eating routine, so this book is great for new ideas. Not to mention, the photos are lovely. I think it says a lot about a photo when it can get you to crave lettuce!
