Think that salad is just for the rabbits? Think again! David Bez pushes the salad boundaries in Salad Love.
So, my husband has never been a really big fan of salads. He says “oh, that green stuff.” Yeah. Me, on the other hand, well I love salad, but I usually like to amp it up with considerable additions! No boring salad for me. No sir.
This book has such a fresh approach on salads that can just keep giving! In fact, there are 260 different salads, and they are all fabulously unique! One things that I particularly love is that “that green stuff” is not always the base of the salad. Instead, often spiralized carrots, zucchini, or other vegetables make the beautiful bed. Another option – a variety of grains – from red rice to quinoa to freekeh.
And then let’s move on to the dressings. Well, I know some people say that dressing suddenly takes all healthiness out of the salad. I tend to disagree. A little dressing goes a long way. This book has 24 easy-to-make dressings so that you can avoid the over-processed stuff from the store. Each recipe is paired with a dressing. Of course it can still be optional.
What I love about this book is that the recipes can be so flexible! It is a celebration of fruits, veggies, and whole grains. Oh, and don’t forget the protein! You can either go meats or beans to get that added benefit. Lastly, the recipes are separated by season, so you can go to ingredients that you can find at that time of year.
Salad Love is an inspiration of texture and flavor combinations, but you can still easily alter the recipe to fit your diet. I think this book is going to earn a permanent spot on my shelf, especially when I’m looking fora new fresh idea to get out of a rut.
