5.0 out of 5 stars And to think I thought salad was boring? 16 Nov 2012
By Mrs. T. Newton TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
That is until I had to diet and discovered this litle 'Iced' gem... (Excuse the pun!)

The Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook 200 series, is rapidly growing in my house. This time I was pleased to be able to review the 200 Super Salads book, as I've liked all of this range before, and this is no exception. They cover everything. In this book the contents include salads of all shapes and sizes; side, light, big, warm and fruit salads, along with other versions such as rice, beans, grains and pasta salads. Great for dieters and the health concious. I've even lost a few pounds preparing salads from this book!

Each salad has a dedicated recipe page on the left and facing it there is also a mouth-watering picture of the finished product. I like this in a book this small in size, as it's thick enough to not feel like a waste of page and the photos are much more appealing than just any old plain salad might look.

Many of these salads I have already tried out, and some I still plan to. So far I've been able to produce pretty good results and found them fairly easy to cope with. Yes, I know they are only salads, but with 200 to choose from there are many different styles, and ingredients to choose from. Top that with a variety of dressings and there's so much scope.

I used to think salads where just plain boring, but this has re-invented the meaning of salad for me and my family. No more limp lettuce with a couple of cherry tomatoes for us!

4.0 out of 5 stars Creative Salads 25 Oct 2012
By Brett H TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars All dressed up... 28 Oct 2012
By techpuppy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There's an art to salad making, since you're often dealing with very subtle flavours and delicate leafy textures you have to combine and dress salads with a light touch - maybe they're the culinary equivalent of watercolour painting, if that's not too pretentious an analogy? The Hamlyn 200 Super Salads cookbook runs through many familiar favourites and tosses in a few new combo's, all presented in the now standard Hamlyn 200 style - a pocket-sized book with a recipe on one page (usually with an alternative variation) and a photo on the other.

The book is broken into various sections starting with a few salad dressing recipes, through side salads, onto main and warm salads and ending up with selection of fruit salads. Too many of the main salads seem to be just 'side-salad with added meat or fish' and ironically vegetarians seem a bit under-served in a cookbook about salads, but all the recipes look or sound tasty and most use readily available ingredients and shouldn't take very long to prepare. This is my 7th or 8th Hamlyn 200 cookbook and probably won't be my last, they're an affordable and genuinely helpful addition to any kitchen drawer, even if all you need is a bit of inspiration or a quick reminder of a favourite recipe.

PS: There's a recipe for Smoked Trout & Grape Salad on page 64, which I'm sure is lovely, but I can offer a simple but delicious variation to that (taught to me by a chef) - Take thin fillets of Smoked Trout and interleave them with wafer-thin slices of Galia Melon, then dress to taste - the mayonnaise recipe given in the aforementioned recipe would be fine. Enjoy...

4.0 out of 5 stars A great offering from Hamlyn 22 Aug 2012
By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really like the compact size of these Hamlyn cookbooks as I find them handy to take to the supermarket to get the ingredients for whatever I fancy that day. Most of the recipes in this book serve 4 people.
As with all recipe books some of the recipes are great, some just don't appeal or are so basic they are more suitable for the absolute beginner. The book is divided into six chapters:

Side Salads, including potato salad and an unusual pickled vegetable salad
Light Salads, including the very tasty cajun potato and prawn salad
Big Salads, including the spicy lamb and couscous salad
Warm Salads, including an Asian salmon salad
Rice, Beans, Grains and Pasta, including a very easy farfalle, tomato and pesto salad
Fruit Salads, including poached fruit with ginger biscuits

The introduction includes the recipes for eleven basic salad sauces and dressings

Every recipe has a page to itself and the facing page for a colour photo and some of the recipes have variations so if you don't fancy an Asian salmon salad there is a recipe for Asian tofu salad instead.
This is a good book to provide some fresh ideas for some delicious salads.
