If you’re a salad lover (or just want to eat healthier), Salad Love by David Bez is a great book to check out! The salads in this book are so beautiful; it makes a great coffee table book. My favorite salads in the book were “Roasted Eggland, Tomato, and Pesto,” “White Grapefruit, Kale, Apple, and Pomegranate,” and “Purple Potatoes, Peas, and Carrot.” If you’ve been wanting to make more salads but just need a little push, this is a great book for inspiration. Bez shows how making salads and eating healthily can be a lot of fun.
The recipes are very detailed, and each recipe includes directions for both the salad and salad dressing. A neat feature of the book is that the salads are divided into seasons, so you can choose salads for spring, summer, fall, or winter. Some of the ingredients in the book I would never have thought to even include in a salad, so the book is definitely very creative! Salad Love is a great hybrid between a cookbook and art book. Another nice touch of the book is that Bez talks about the different components of a salad in detail (base, fruits and vegetables, dressings and spices, etc); though the book is primarily composed of pictures of salads along with their recipes, this text-based information Bez provides at the beginning is insightful. In sum, this book is a very mouth-watering read that will probably make you want to eat more salad. The pictures look delicious!
