Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

First-time author Chandler proves, with over 100 winning recipes, that you don't have to go to a restaurant to get a top-notch salad that's healthy and flavorful. Using bagged, pre-washed salad blends as a base, Chandler whips up everything from a traditional Steakhouse Wedge Salad with blue cheese, bacon and tomatoes to Margarita Chicken Salad, Thai Beef Salad and Lobster Salad with Grapefruit Vinaigrette. Even if readers never make the salads, the book's numerous dressings and slaws deserve a look, as do the bean, rice and pasta-based dishes. With something for every salad lover, Chandler's collection is bound to inspire.

Overall, this book is a great way to get the family to eat healthy foods and it is all made *so* easy.
Alison M. Robinson
I made her a couple of recipes from this book, and she loved them so much, that she bought one for herself, and one for a friend of hers for Christmas too.
S. Thompson
This book makes it easy to mix and match a wide variety of delicious salad/veggie & dressing combinations.

I purchased this cookbook based on the other reviews on Amazon; it is absolutely worth it! There are at least 100 recipes and then if you use mix and match variations you could easily have 100 more. Each recipe comes with a color photo as well as a dressing suggestion. Ms. Chandler offers homemade dressing recipes but you could buy a bottled version if you don't want to make your own. But they are so simple to make and quite a bit healthier (no added preservatives, MSG, etc) that you'll find your self just making dressing from now on.
Many of the salads are complete meals just by adding a meat (she has chapters devoted to chicken, beef, seafood and pork) plus vegetarian options by adding beans, chickpeas, fruit etc. There's a great 7 layer salad that is to die for.
Overall a great cookbook, nice photos, great recipes. Well worth it.
Also, a great gift for someone trying to lead a healthier lifestyle by eating and using truly fresh ingredients.

`Simply Salads' by relative newcomer writer, Jennifer Chandler, is based on a simple and very attractive premise of using cut, cleaned, and bagged greens from your grocers' refrigerated produce section. I am not a great fan of these bagged goods, except for the single variety packs of spinach, arugula, and the like. And, since I am known for excessive nit-picking, let me say at the outset that this is a first rate cookbook resource for someone who really likes salads. For those people, especially people with at least three or four people to feed at a sitting who do not have a lot of time to shop for and prep the individual greens, this is a superb premise, and Ms. Chandler pulls it off with very few gotchas.

The biggest question regarding these packaged greens, of course, is whether to trust the `pre-washed' claim, especially in light of the recent vegetable borne food contamination on spinach and onions. I was firmly in the camp, even before this news, of thoroughly washing all greens, sometimes several times (for spinach especially), and I was backed up in this view by no less then Emeril Lagasse who, on a show a few years back, gave a scolding look to the notion of using unwashed greens, regardless of the packaging. The author tends to believe the packagers' claim of effective pre-washing. I would recommend washing and spinning dry, regardless of how big the `prewashed' blurbs are on the package.

I warmed up to Ms. Chandler's book when I saw her list of recommend kitchen tools and pantry items. These lists seem to be done by every Tom, Dick and Harry cookbook writer, and many are unnecessarily long for the `cook because I have to' working parent. Ms. Chandler's list is just about right.

I love an exotic salad. I collect specialty cookbooks. Ergo, "Simply Salads" is now an integral part of my collection.

Not without good reason! Right on the cover, Jennifer Chandler announces that her cookbook contains "more than 100 delicious creative recipes made from prepackaged greens and a few easy-to-find ingredients." My goodness, who could ask for more, but I did. I wanted proof. Let's walk through the book. (When I get a new cookbook, I start at the beginning and leaf through every single page, stopping at certain recipes to read for difficulty and ingredients. Oh my, but I want to try so many recipes from this book.)

This introductory chapter displays all the packaged greens, a standard list of kitchen aids needed, and pantry items. The first recipe is "Steakhouse Wedge Salad" and what a gorgeous photo (Every single recipe has a close-up photo of the salad). By the way, each recipe comes with a homemade dressing, but, of course, store-bought can be used. Here's a Wilted Spinach Salad with mushrooms and an egg-based dressing.

The book is arranged by categories of salads. The two recipes above come from the Greens chapter. Others are the various meats, Fruit, then Beans, Grains, Rice & Pasta, next Slaws, and the additional Dressings chapter. Let's continue our flip-through: Grilled Romaine with mandarin orange slices and toasted almonds with a green goddess dressing. Does it look great! Black and Blue Chicken Salad (Bleu cheese and blackened chicken), Prosciutto and Melon Salad, Beef Tenderloin Salad with Horseradish Dressing (yogurt, sour cream, horseradish, and mayonnaise--sounds heavenly, yes?), and Grilled Lamb and Tabbouleh Salad for a Middle Eastern flavor.

_Simply Salads_ is number one for me. After using many salad books and having to make many separate recipes for each salad - this book comes along and tells you how to buy bags of pre-washed salad greens(yes, you can trust that- just check with the UC Berkeley newsletter who convinced me)and other pre-cut vegetables and add in easy ingredients that anyone can find and turn out really fantastic salads that the family will request over and over.
The book is organized in an easy format first explaining all the salad blends, then the recipes are organized by poultry, meat, seafood, vegetable, fruit, bean,grain and pasta, and slaws, with a final chapter for vinaigrettes and dressings that is so good and so healthful that you will never go back to store bought. Easy too!
Many of the salads are easily main course meals. My children love all the ones we have made and several are absolute favorites -
like 'hearts of romaine with tart apples, hazelnuts and cheddar cheese (we use Pink Lady instead of Granny Smith); 'Asian noodle salad with peanut dressing'; 'creamy broccoli slaw'; and a strong favorite - 'chicken tostada salad'.
Overall, this book is a great way to get the family to eat healthy foods and it is all made *so* easy. What more could you want?
