Mighty Salads: A Review

Ever since my husband and I decided to lighten up our meals, salads have shifted their place of honor from being a side dish to taking center stage as the main course--which is why I was thrilled to finally receive my copy of the brand new cookbook called Mighty Salads by the popular editors of Food52.

As soon as I started flipping through the pages, I could quickly see that these were not just any typical dinner salads. The ingredients were fabulous. The dressings were exciting. And the combinations were more than just a little tantalizing.

For instance, take a look at some of the featured recipes: Carrot & Radicchio Salad with Fig-Balsamic Vinaigrette, Charred Broccoli & Lentil Salad, Grilled Ratatouille & Bulgar Salad, Farro & Golden Beet Salad with Chive-Sage Dressing, Roasted Chickpea Salad with Za'atar, and Chicken & Rice Salad with Poached Radishes and Nuoc Cham. Need I go on?

As you can clearly see, these are not your mother's salads. Rather, they are novel salads that will elevate any meal to a whole new dimension. I can't wait to get started!
