The dressing recipes are all fresh and delicious. The vinaigrettes are simple and tasty. The Wild Party Salad recipe was beautiful although I don't know if I would invest in all those edible flowers. If I grew the flowers that might be one thing but to buy them would be a little costly. The rainbow slaw was a work of art. I did make the Garden Celebration Salad, it's a composed salad of zucchini, wax beans, colored sweet peppers, green beans, red cabbage with a garlic vinaigrette that was delicious. It held up well during a summer grill out.
This cookbook might be a little overwhelming if you're starting out but it well worth the price in the long run. Many of the salads combined pieces of protein, tuna, squid, duck, swordfish and red meats to make a complete meal.
There was a recipe for the traditional Salade Nicoise that would make a nice bridal luncheon presentation. There are recipes for soups, gazpacho, vichyssoise, miso, chowders, and a fancy carrot soup. All pretty but a little over the top.
If you're looking for a simpler salad cookbook then go with "Simply Salads" by Jennifer Chandler. It's just as lovely a cookbook but with more everyday salads rather than these Martha Stewart presentations.
Both serve their purpose...HTH.
A wonderful addition to any cooks collection.
