The Perfectly Dressed Salad
More Than 50 Recipes to Make your Salads Sing, From Quick-fix Vinaigrettes to Creamy ClassicsBook - 2014
The key to any great salad is using good-quality, fresh ingredients but it is the dressing that can make or break the final result. With that in mind, this book features recipes for a wide variety of exciting dressings that take their inspiration from different world cuisines--from classic vinaigrettes and mayonnaises to Asian and Japanese-style dressings. Lighter choices include a Champagne Vinegar Dressing or Hazelnut and Raspberry Vinegar; spice things up with Wasabi Dressing or Mexican Lime, Cilantro, and Chipotle Dressing. Herbs add a pungent flavor punch--try Dill and Horseradish or a tangy Mediterranean-style Parsley and Green Olive option. Creamy classics are a must and homemade Ranch and Green Goddess dressings can't be beaten! Fruity dressings add color and vibrancy to summer dining--ideas included here are Pink Grapefruit Vinaigrette, Key West Mango and Lime Dressing or Cherry Salsa. Finally, exotically spiced warmed dressings can make a simple salad the main event: choose from Onion and Moroccan Harissa Dressing or Black Bean and Ginger for a true taste of Asia.
