Almost everybody loves salads; Busy cooks often used the kind that comes packaged in the grocery store, but since they are fairly easy to make, many cooks make them from scratch at home. One of the problems with salads is coming up with new or innovative ways to make them exciting. Pam Powell, who owns a salad dressing company and has a successful blog called Salad Girl, is the author of an excellent cookbook, Beautiful Salads: Delicious Organic Salads and Dressings for Every Season. This cookbook is quite possibly the only salad cookbook ever needed because there are so many mouthwatering ideas. The salad recipes are divided into seasons, so it’s easy to find something to make according to what is fresh and in season.

Not your pedestrian salad book, this excellent book includes dozens of unique seasonal salads – fruit, vegetable, full meal including meats, poultry, cheese, etc. - using modern organic ingredients with mouthwatering dressings that not only go with the salads published, but are also good to have around to dress everyday salads. This book is worth having just for the variety of salad dressings alone.

If you’re looking for something extra special to serve to company, or just something different to serve for dinner, you can’t go wrong with this cookbook. The instructions are succinct and easy-to-follow, the ingredients are mostly easy-to-find in regular grocery stores, and there are several beautiful photographs. Most grocery stores feature fancy types of lettuce and sprouts; this book has recipes for all of those little known ingredients that can make our salads exciting.

All told, this is an excellent cookbook for salad lovers. It will get plenty of use in households that love salad, and the unique dressings are a real bonus.
