I was skeptical of this cookbook initially - the recipes sometimes call for ingredients that are difficult or expensive to source outside of certain niche (vegan, Brooklyn) enclaves; soaked nut-based dressings are supposed to replace the classic egg-based originals; the textures of the "sweet & savory" section are skin-crawling (e.g. smoothie bowls).

These reservations aside, the organization of the book is faultless (recipes are organized seasonally, and the author walks you through a week of shopping and prep-work in a few short paragraphs), the salads themselves are nutritious, original, filling (most work as entrees or stand-alone meals - satisfying even the biggest appetite), crowd pleasing (they scale well), easy to modify (if you are lacking ingredients or time) and most importantly, delicious.

This book provides both a creative jolt and a handful of new standards to add to your regular repertoire, and proves worthwhile for vegans and omnivores alike. ( )

Discover the Way of the Salad

Award-winning chef and Veganomicon coauthor Terry Hope Romero knows her veggies. In Salad Samurai, she's back to teach you the way of the veggie warrior, rescuing salads from their bland, boring reputation and "side" status with more than 100 vibrant, filling entrees. This is your guide to real salad bushido: a hearty base, a zesty dressing, and loads of seriously tasty toppings. Based on whole food ingredients and seasonal produce, these versatile meatless, dairy-free dishes are organized by season for a full year of memorable meals (yes, salad can rock even the coldest days of winter). Dig in to:
Spring Herb Salad with Maple Orange Tempeh
Deviled Kale Caesar Salad
Seared Garlic Chickpeas, Spinach, and Farro
Seitan Steak Salad with Green Peppercorn Dressing
Herbed Pea Ricotta, Tomatoes, and Basil
Mushroom, Barley, and Brussels Harvest Bowl
Tempeh Rubenesque Salad
Pomegranate Quinoa Holiday Tabouli
Seitan Bacon Wedge Salad
and many more!

With designations for gluten-free and raw-ready options and recipes that are work-friendly, weeknight-ready, high-protein, and loaded with superfoods, Salad Samurai shows you the way of the salad: killer dishes that are satisfying, healthy, and scrumptious.
