Good choice for anyone.

The back of the book includes some salad recipes, but some of these dressings are so good they also work as main-dish sauces.

Format: Hardcover
The recipes in this book are usually very easy, and all of them that I have tried are creative and original. Title notwithstanding, about half of the recipes are vinaigrettes. They include most of the basic, but also some exotic ones like White Miso Vinaigrette and Warm Fava Vinaigrette. There are also recipes for international concoctions and creamy dressings. And a section on wonderful and creative salads. It's also a lovely package. Good gift.

Michele Anna Jordan's book is more than a collection of recipes. In addition to including some interesting historical tidbits about dressings; she provides tips on the basic techniques, allowing a home cook to learn the proportions, etc and experiment with their own flavors if they want. The back of the book includes some salad recipes, but some of these dressings are so good they also work as main-dish sauces. I use this book at least three times a week and in my weekly menu planning.

Format: Hardcover
If you consider yourself a "foodie" and are interested in making your own mayonnaise, or trying chimichurri, harissa, raita, chermoula, or something "voluptous" made with a raw egg yolk, this book is for you. As she says of traditional pasta salads, "my preference lies elsewhere". The author is going for a sophisticated tone but comes off as pompous instead.
I was looking for an alternative to the sodium-heavy bottled dressings, and was unimpressed with the offerings here. The two recipes I did try were relatively dull.
