Anyone familiar with the Food52 website already knows it’s the perfect place for foodies. There are also several Food52 cookbooks, and all so far are excellent. Salads are always popular, and with the number of people wanting to eat lighter foods, main dish salads are what everybody seems to be eating. Food52 Mighty Salads: 60 New Ways to Turn Salad into Dinner--and Make-Ahead Lunches, Too includes recipes by several of the editors of the popular blog Food 52.

The book includes all of the building blocks for salads, including information on preparing and storing greens, dressings, and add-ins. There are dozens of articles on how to do things, such as pit olives, steam instead of boil eggs, bulk toast nuts, slicing tomatoes quickly and sprouting grains. Many of the salads are quite innovative, and all look very appetizing. The pictures are beautiful, the instructions are easy to understand, and the recipes will make almost everyone want salad two or three times a day.

The cookbook includes green salads, less-leafy vegetable salads, grain and bean salads, pasta and bread salads, fish & seafood salads, and meat salads. Who could resist a Bloody Mary Steak Salad or Smoked Lentil Salad with Sriracha Miso Mayo. There is a mouthwatering Radicchio & Shrimp Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette, a scrumptious Thai Pork Salad with Crisped Rice, and a Steak & Tossed Salsa Verde Salad to name a few.

If you like salad and want to add variety to what you serve, you’ll definitely want to own this book. It’s one you’ll peruse often, and find dozens of new salads to prepare.
