Bez, David. Salad Love: 260 Crunchy, Savory and Filling Meals You Can Make Every Day. New York: Clarkson Potter/ Publishers. 2014.
Wanting to eat healthy, fresh food for lunch every day, author David Bez set out on a quest to make a new, interesting, appetizing and healthy salad for lunch each day that could easily be made at work. With a base, proteins, vegetables, fruits, dressings and toppings, he not only succeeded but enticed his employees to follow suit, creating seasonal, easy to prepare succulent salads. Breaking the mold that salads are only sides and rather boring, Salad Love embraces a healthier lifestyle with easy-to-follow salad recipes and gorgeous accompanying pictures. Yum!
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Wow. I absolutely love this book! Not only from a healthier approach to eating but the motivation and success achieved with the simple approach to doing it. Though not a chef nor photographer, the recipes pictures are beautiful, taken just before the salad is devoured. I so appreciate the seafood used is sustainable and the other items fresh. Agreeing with his statement that eating healthy should not be painful but a treat to ourselves, this book is right on target. With glossy, sturdier pages, alternatives to change the type of salad (i.e: vegan to omnivore), salads specific to seasons, basic directions for preparation of a salad, easy to add protein ingredients and the salad finally being given its own deserved accolades, Salad Love hit the mark for me. Though not necessarily for everyone, I plan on purchasing several copies for friends and family. Well done! Salad on!!
