Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The founder and executive chef of San Francisco's boutique salad joint Mixt Greens, Swallow gives top billing to the humble salad in a collection that is by turns lush, lavish and imaginative, including signature dishes like the Park Ave (grilled chicken, herb-roasted fingerling potatoes, grilled asparagus and Parmesan), its meaty mate the Bachelor (with Yukon Gold potatoes, filet mignon and Roquefort), the Tokyo (Kobe beef carpaccio with fried leeks) and the Grove (Honeycrisp apples, fennel, spiced walnuts and blue cheese). Organized by season, and prefaced with a guide to maximizing on-hand produce, this volume gives salad makers an imaginative push, though they may hit a wall trying to source key ingredients like aged sherry vinegar, sweetbreads, quail eggs, and hedgehog mushrooms. The salad-averse will appreciate the Porky-mixed greens, roasted butternut squash, pork tenderloin and port reduction-and Swallow's bunless Kobe beef cheeseburger, served atop butter lettuce. Though some may be disappointed in the selection of dressings, nearly all of which are vinaigrette variations, this is a vital, inspired and varied collection that even steak-and-potatoes fans can appreciate.

As most of the other reviews have mentioned, the book is gorgeous--beautiful photos and clear easy-to-read text. But I totally disagree with the quick, easy, readily available ingredients claims made by other reviewers. I live in the far north suburbs of Chicago and shop at local farmer's markets (only available during the summer and early fall), but I do not have access to many of these ingredients. Also techniques are not explained, i.e. chiffonade of basil, which means to cut into thin strips. If I lived in California (where the author's restaurant is located) I might have access to opal basil, squash blossoms, pea sprouts, Blue Lake beans, hedgehog mushrooms, summer truffle, sharlyn melon, Gypsy peppers, sea beans, and yuzu juice (and those are just some of the uncommon ingredients from the first 86 of the 146 pages). The next time I plan a trip to California I would love to eat at his restaurant, but I won't be making any of these recipes myself. I definitely recommend checking the book out of your local library before making the decision to purchase.

So we're all trying to eat healthier right? I've been doing my part, trying to eat more veggies, more salads etc., but it's so easy to fall in to a slump, get stuck in a rut of 'Chicken Caesar' or 'The Iceberg Wedge'. This book breaks you out of the ruts, throws in the concept of fresh, seasonal ingredients and will keep you going with a ton of fresh ideas you can either take right out of the book or use as a jumping off point for your own creation. What's more important, to me at least, is that the book has _AMAZING_ photos of the food. The really great thing is that as you nosh away, you'll forget you're actually eating something that's good for you.

I eat Mixt every day. I was really happy to find their recipe book used online for cheap since their meat is always perfect. Veggies are always a matter of getting fresh produce, but the pork and steak is always tender and juicy, even in a cold salad. The chicken... eh it's chicken but never dry. Their fish is always perfect too. Hopefully I can recreate the meat aspects of their creations at home.

This guy can really combine the ingredients to make a mundane (to some people) topic--salad--really pop! The freshness and use of seasonal ingredients alone was a great draw for me, because if it is seasonal, it has not had a gruesome trip across an ocean or a continent-so starts out fresher----but the varieties and use of flavors -seasoniong, and dressings is outstanding--I highly recommend checking this out-it is inspiring and may start new favorites in your house too!

The recipes in this book are very inspiring.. There are good photographs, but not for all of the recipes, I wish there were more photos. I haven't made one recipe from this book and I've owned it for over 1 year.. It needs special ingredients and seems to be a lot of work for making just a salad.

Love to read the book, but to be honest, haven't yet cooked a single dish which isn't unusual....books are my passion. If I only would cook one single dish of all my collections, I probably have to live at least 50 more years.

I have already made three of the recipes in this book and been blown away by the results. The ingredient combination are really innovative and blend together amazingly well. Chef Swallow definitely seems like a passionate character - I love reading where he gets his inspiration. This is definitely a great gift book as well.

A creative and fun exploration of branching out from the same old boring salad. The voice of the author can be easily heard guiding you through fun and inventive recipes that will change your views of salad medleys forever. The photos are beautiful and show the reader how to make healthy salad creations that are perfect for an afternoon lunch at the office or to impress dinner guests alike.
