Salads all year round

 

It may come as a surprise to some, that Delicious, the food magazine loved by Australian cooks and foodlovers is available around the world in various countries. Makkie Mulder is the editor of Dutch Delicious, and is well placed to provide a range of tasty and nutritious salad recipes. 

Altthough you may think that salads are a summer dish, this book lives up to its name with dishes that would suit every season. It is arranged, however, by major ingredients: vegetables, fish and prawns, cheese, grains, meats and fruit - and the author thoughtfully includes a chapter on breads which cooks can make to coordinate with their salads.

Beautifully and clearly illustrated, the reader feels they can almost taste salads such as the butter lettuce with avocado and mint tea chicken, so tempting it's difficult not to want to dive right in to it. The grilled asparagus with smoked tofu and radish salsa is especially pretty too.

The book is laid out much as Makkie's magazine would be, with notes and advice on the photography pages, and stamps that say things like 'nice crunch!' or 'wow factor' to further encourage readers.

There are some interesting twists on a salad, such as the DIY pasta salad with tuna and anchovy dressing in which all the components are laid out on a platter so that guests can mix and match their own favourite combinations.

There are salads that stand alone as complete meals and others you will serve as a side, but many you will want to make over and over. Every bit as good for entertaining at a BBQ, as they are to partner crusty bread for a healthy lunch, the over 100 recipes in this book will make the perfect kitchen companion for the year.
