    What a fantastic cookbook! One-plate salad meals, with a few simple, fresh, easy-to-find ingredients, easy preparation, and ideas on different ways to personalize the dish. She's down-to-earth, read-able, and just in case all that wasn't enough, she includes Moroccan foods! Some I know and love, some that are new to me, but wonderful. This is one of the few books I've checked out over and over from the library, and finally decided I just have to buy. Yum! =) What a fantastic cookbook!

    I own Joyce Goldstein's other Mediterranean cookbook, The Mediterranean Kitchen, and love it. So when I found this one at the library, I was eager to try it. This one is even better for my purpose of getting more fresh vegetables into our diet. There are two sections: one with salads, the other with vinaigrettes. Simple. The great part is that the salads are all based around a main ingredient (like greens, beets, carrots, fish, chickpeas, cauliflower, etc.), with lots of variations and suggestio I own Joyce Goldstein's other Mediterranean cookbook, The Mediterranean Kitchen, and love it. So when I found this one at the library, I was eager to try it. This one is even better for my purpose of getting more fresh vegetables into our diet. There are two sections: one with salads, the other with vinaigrettes. Simple. The great part is that the salads are all based around a main ingredient (like greens, beets, carrots, fish, chickpeas, cauliflower, etc.), with lots of variations and suggestions, including one suggested dressing as a part of the recipe. But at the bottom of each salad recipe, there are 3-5 alternate dressings. In the back, recipes for 35 or or more dressings/vinaigrettes are offered, and each of those vinaigrettes are keyed to all the salad options that work well with that dressing. The idea is that you make up 3-4 dressings (like yogurt mint, anchovy, tapenade) and then use it on 2 or 3 different salads for each one. I've been cooking for about a month with this cookbook and feel like I haven't repeated anything -- and it's all been superb. I particularly like "harissa," a hot pepper cumin vinaigrette that is Tunisian. Deelish! This book is so great, I had to buy it.

    Billed as "A compendium of one-plate salad meals and mix-and-match dressings" this cookbook contains over 170 recipes, most of which sound great! I've been looking to increase my repertoire of salads and vegetables and I think this cookbook will do that. Can't wait to try Oregano-garlic vinaigrette and charmoula and harissa dressings. The book also has a great detailed listing of various salad greens.

    I picked this up from the library a while back, read through it from cover to cover, and do not recall any recipes grabbing my attention. I love the idea, "One-Plate Salad Meals and Mix-and-Match Dressings" but remember thinking that I should just make note of my own favorite flavor combinations to mix and match. It's okay, but not a cookbook that I will be going back to. I picked this up from the library a while back, read through it from cover to cover, and do not recall any recipes grabbing my attention.

    I did look at all the recipes, but actually enjoyed the narrative regarding types of salad greens and info concerning bases for dressings.

    I checked this one out because I needed a salad for a potluck. There's some good stuff in there. I checked this one out because I needed a salad for a potluck. There's some good stuff in there.

    Beautiful photographs. Great idea. There are several dressings/sauces that can mixed matched with the salad and entrees to create a variety of different versions of the dishes. Nice salads.
