I'm back with another cookbook review thanks to Blogging for Books!
This time around, I picked a book by David Bez called "Salad Love." I'm always searching for a creative way to lunch on a salad, so I quickly snatched up this book and got to reading.
David starts out the book by telling the reader that this actually isn't a cookbook at all. It is more of his documentation of his lunches over time and all the different combinations he used to make a salad. He explains that he was striving lunches he could easily prepare at his desk focusing on fresh ingredients. I'm a huge brown baggin' it fan, so this appealed to me.
David teaches the reading things he has learned, such as how to assemble a salad. As a loyal salad toter, this is key. He breaks it down for ya.
You've got the...
5. fresh herbs
From there you have 260 salad combinations to choose from. 260!! That's a crazy amount of salads. And the sections are broken into seasons, which is when the produce suggested will be at its peak of deliciousness.
I like a lot of the combinations suggested in this book and can't wait to try some out to mix up my lunch routine. This book is an overall great resource, but not my ideal first choice if I was just browsing through. It seems a bit overwhelming with 260 salads, but non the less, they all seem lovely. Personally, I like to read cookbooks like a novel, read the stories about how the author is attached to the recipe or how it is integrated into their lives.
Hope to share some great salad combinations with you all soon!
Cheers and happy reading,
