So is the Grilled Chicken Salad with Red and Yellow Peppers and Honey-Dijon Vinaigrette.
I can't understand the reviewer who said the dressings were too oily and sweet. I've never tasted such delicious salads in my life. And the dressings are over-the-top delicious.
The food critics agree. The book has received glowing reviews. Check out the review in The Seattle Times if you don't believe me.
There are more than 70 salads featured in this cookbook, and so far, the ones I've sampled are as delicious as they look in the gorgeous photographs.
I dare anyone to try the Wheat Berry Salad on p. 195 and not love it. Or any of the salads I mentioned above. Or the Jicama, Mango and Green Cabbage Slaw with Citrus Vinaigrette. Or the Cajun Shrimp and Corn Salad with Lime-Chile Dressing. Or The Seared Salmon with Baby Greens and Mango Salsa Vinaigrette. Or the Mixed Greens and Radicchio Salad with Grilled Sliced Steak. The Gremolata Dressing with greated lemon zest is a perfect complement to the steak--and certainly not sweet, but not bitter either. This reader and cook thought the Gremolate Dressing was outstanding with the steak. Certainly beats your standard Steak Sauce!
I could go on and on, but if you are a salad lover, don't just take my word for it. Buy the book and sample some of the dozens of scrumptious salads in RAISING THE SALAD BAR. I'd be surprised if you don't agree with me.
I love this book. The recepies are easy and the salads are very good. The other good thing is that on the back, it has a section of only salad dressings. I strongly recommend this book.
My favorite recipes are the Wheatberry and the Chicken Salad recipes. The Fried Tomato and Lobster salad are this side of outrageous! What I like best about this book versus other cook books I have is that these recipes tend to bring out the natural goodness and flavor of the main ingredients rather then mask them w/thick and oily dressings.
The recipes are easy to read. The instructions are straightforward and the end product is always gorgeously presented.
Best of all, the tastes of the recipes live up to expectations. They come out perfectly as written. I have had great success with every recipe I've tried thus far with my favorites being the Lemony Asparagus and Artichoke Pasta Salad and the Lentil Salad with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette. Both were so good I could easily imagine them on a restaurant menu and found myself licking my plate clean. Given these results I cannot wait to try more recipes including Tabouli Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Parsley and Mint and Thai Quinoa Salad. The only challenge with this cookbook is deciding which salad to make next as each recipe sounds better than the last.
If you love salads and are looking for more variety than what you've found in other books this is certainly the resource for you.
