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!
