Book Description

Myra Goodman knows salad. Founder with her husband, Drew, of Earthbound Farm—the largest grower of organic produce in North America—she is the author FOOD TO LIVE BY and THE EARTHBOUND COOK, sumptuous cookbooks built on the idea of fresh, seasonal cooking. From those books, she has culled a useful and inspiring ebook short filled with 25 recipes for salads that showcase the best produce of spring, summer, fall and winter.

Colorful, healthy, and packed with delightful textures and flavors, these are what salads should be.  For Spring and Summer: Strawberry-Tarragon Salad with Aged Balsamic Vinegar; Chopped Summer Vegetable Salad; Farro Salad with Edamame and Arugula; Summer Salad with Butter Lettuce, Raspberries, and Hazelnuts. Fall and Winter: Jicama and Orange Salad with Orange-Sesame Vinaigrette; Escarole with Walnuts, Dates, and Bacon; Roasted Beet Salad alla Caprese; Autumn Salad with Persimmons and Pomegranate Seeds.  Plus a Field Guide to Salad Greens, sidebars exploring ingredients and salad basics, how to grow your own sprouts and infuse your own oils, and a chapter dedicated to versatile dressings and dips.

This review is for the Kindle version, here: Salads for Every Season

Wonderful book for salad-lovers! Salads are organized (in the detailed table of contents) by season (2 sections: Spring and Summer, Winter and Fall), and each season has both salad recipes and recipes for home-made salad-dressings. Recipes all include very clear directions, info on how many it serves, and color photos (a feature I LOVE! Can't see color photos on my Kindle-Keyboard, but they are beautiful in the Cloud reader, or Kindle-for-PC, iPod, and probably Fire).

There is also a really helpful section on identifying different greens/salad ingredients ("Field Guide to Salad Greens), with nice clear pictures of each type. The author has also added many little inset sections with helpful info that relates to the recipe is it near - examples: Salad Green Yields, About Ferro, How to Segment Citrus Fruits, About Jicama, Sesame Seed Oils, and many more - lots of helpful info in these.

There is a chapter about "Twelve Important Reasons to Choose Organic"

Recipes include many salads centered around "greens" but there are also many recipes for salads made with other ingredients as the main attraction - fruits, tomatoes, persimmon, bulgur, apples, and roast beef being examples.

I am definitely going to be using several of these recipes to expand my salad repertoire!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Freebie! Looks great on the Kindle Touch November 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Freebie Kindle book with pictures. Looks great on the new Kindle Touch. In addition to the salad recipes, there are pics of different lettuce types, how many cups each variety of lettuce yields, how to roast bell peppers, roast hazelnuts, make croutons, grow sprouts etc.. The author has included information on different salad ingredients which I found educational. For example, I have never eaten nor used persimmons in a salad before, so it was nice that she included the two main types, what to look for, when they are available and their taste/texture characteristics and if to cook them or eat them raw.

The book has a nice chatty feel to it. The author is actually one of the first people to market packaged salads and spring mixes for retail. She is an environmentalist and there is some "green speak" in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Recipe Book - Beautiful on Kindle Fire November 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't expecting much from this Kindle book, esp. with only 25 recipes, beyond a disconnected compilation of salad recipes(which is what you often see in a short Kindle cookbook).

Instead, this book sets the bar higher for _all_ eBook cookbooks. It's very professionally done, with a colorful picture for every recipe and well-written intros, directions, ingredients and boxes with helpful information on unique salad ingredients or technique. The layout makes reading on a screen easy on the eyes.

Salads for Every Season is at its best on a Kindle Fire: Vibrant, colorful and very much like a nice cookbook in print (but more concise).

The content is divided into seasonal salads for Spring & Summer, Fall & Winter. The recipes follow through using seasonal ingredients--like fresh raspberries, bell peppers, basil for summer or pomegranate, apple, walnut for winter. The salads have fresh flavor combinations, for example:

Butter lettuce, raspberries and hazelnuts (summer)
Escarole with walnuts, dates, and bacon (winter)

Even better than the salads themselves, this cookbook has luscious-sounding homemade dressings and vinaigrettes. I can't wait to try the orange walnut vinaigrette or the tofu dill dressing.

Earthbound Farms founder, Myra Goodman, wrote the eBook recipes which are in fact compiled from two of her cookbooks, listed at the back of the eBook.

I absolutely recommend this ebook (even for a B&W kindle), and get it while it's still offered for free.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice variety! January 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was delighted to get this short ebook for free, though it's totally worth the current $1.99 price (reduced from $2.99). I love salads, so maybe I'm a tad prejudiced?! In terms of size, shorter often is better than longer when it comes to choosing a recipe. Author Myra Goodman of EarthBound Farm reminds us salads "redefine fast food," and gives us a dozen reasons for going organic.

Useful guides and instructions include: "A Field Guide to Salad Greens" with descriptions and pictures; a chart of how much to buy and how much to allow per person for side salad or main-course salad; how to grow sprouts, roast sunflower seeds, toast nuts and seeds in oven, microwave, stovetop; how to blanch fruits and veggies; how to seed and peel a tomato...

You easily could scroll through the varieties of flavors, colors, textures, and tangs in Salad for Every Season to find something that fits the ingredients on hand, or you could vary any basic recipe to your own taste. A reader recommendation? I'd especially like to try some of the vinaigrette variations. Besides Salads and Salad Dressing divided into Spring and Summer / Fall and Winter sections, beautiful full-color photographs are worthy of a book you'll love to have on your bookshelf and hold in your hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eat your greens! November 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awesome (and free)!!. Recipes for great dressings and salads from Myra Goodman, co-founder of Earthbound Farm and the "queen of green". The salad combos in this free e book come from Myra's two cookbooks-Food to Live By and the Earthbound Cook, both of which I would highly recommend checking out as well. Many of these salads are satisfying enough to be the entire meal. A great way to eat more healthfully and more ecologically.

More About the Author

Myra Goodman and her husband, Drew, originally "city kids" from Manhattan, founded Earthbound Farm in their 2 1/2 acre backyard garden in Carmel Valley, CA in 1984. They originally farmed heirloom raspberries, and then added herbs, baby lettuces, and gourmet greens. Myra and Drew were the first to successfully market pre-washed salads for retail sale, and Earthbound Farm soon grew to become the largest grower of organic produce in North America. Myra fell in love with organic farming and cooking at the same time. Her inspiration has always been the bountiful seasonal harvest. She is very excited that her newest cookbook was created in collaboration with her daughter Marea, who grew up on the founding farm where Drew and Myra still live today.
