Salads: Beyond the Bowl: Extraordinary Recipes for Everyday Eating


We love this book for making salads fun! Over 150 pages of recipes and ideas will open your eyes to the limitlessness of salad––but what we particularly love is Mindy’s use and awareness of improvisation.

Fox begins the book with a chapter on “Elemental Salads,”; it explores foundational ingredients and shows how you can build off a single component into countless directions. Although the book has some recipes that include ingredients unlikely to be found in everyone’s kitchen, Mindy helps bring you back to the simple pantry items that can make any salad pop. The book reassures you that not only can you mix and match–but mixing and matching is the fun of it. As a bonus, the book also has gorgeous photos by our good friend Ellen Silverman.
