Salad Seasons: Vegetable-Forward Dishes All Year by Sheela Prakash
With a focus on approachable, flexible recipes that are easy to prepare and bring vegetables to the center of the plate, Salad Seasons will inspire home cooks to make salad a star of the table no matter the time of year. Indeed, with photographs accompanying each recipe, the book celebrates their endless creativity. Featuring side salads, vibrant entrée-style main salads, and even sweet salads (aka fruit salads 2.0), the book spotlights the versatility of the dish that is often an afterthought or mainly celebrated during the summer months. From teaching readers how to properly season and thinking of salads beyond leafy greens to adding crunchy inclusions other than croutons (hello parmesan rind "croutons" and quinoa crunchies) to the allure of sheet pan salads, the book is an inspiring and creative resource for weeknight cooking.
Recipes include: Arugula Salad with Whole Lemon Vinaigrette; Scorched Sugar Snap and Burrata Salad; Grilled BLT Chopped Wedge; Smashed Potato and Chorizo Sheet Pan Salad; Roasted Garlic Kale Salad with Parmesan Rind Croutons; Strawberry Rhubarb Salad with Lavender Honey; Balsamic Black Pepper Cherries; and Earl Gray-Poached Dates with Caramel Creme Fraiche among others.
