It is probably easier to get into a rut in preparing salads than almost any other type of dish, so for many of us a book like this is just what is required to give us a creative jolt. There are certainly plenty of ideas here. It is not a description that I would usually attach to salads, but I found many of them quite mouth watering, particularly since each is accompanied by a full page illustration.
Whatever your personal taste in protein, there are almost certainly recipes here where your choice can be combined into a delicious salad - chicken, bacon, beef, pork, duck, turkey, squid, trout, tuna and many more. They are all there and vegetarians are not ignored either. There is a particularly nice section at the end where something over a dozen fruit salads of various sorts are presented, any of which would make an excellent summer dessert. Further plus points are that none of the recipes seem very difficult and there are few, if any, obscure and difficult to source ingredients.
I have about a dozen of the useful little books in this series, most of which include some recipes which you are likely to return to again and again and this volume is no exception.
