By Susan Schwartzman - Published on
Format: Paperback
RAISING THE SALAD BAR is one of the best cookbooks I have ever sampled. I prepared dozens of the salads, and each is more scrumptious than the next. The Wheat Berry Salad with Citrus Dressing was my favorite until my husband prepared the Baby Spinach and Strawberry Salad and the Seared Scallop Salad with Watercress and Pineapple for my birthday and both were dazzlers.

So is the Grilled Chicken Salad with Red and Yellow Peppers and Honey-Dijon Vinaigrette.

I can't understand the reviewer who said the dressings were too oily and sweet. I've never tasted such delicious salads in my life. And the dressings are over-the-top delicious.

The food critics agree. The book has received glowing reviews. Check out the review in The Seattle Times if you don't believe me.

There are more than 70 salads featured in this cookbook, and so far, the ones I've sampled are as delicious as they look in the gorgeous photographs.

I dare anyone to try the Wheat Berry Salad on p. 195 and not love it. Or any of the salads I mentioned above. Or the Jicama, Mango and Green Cabbage Slaw with Citrus Vinaigrette. Or the Cajun Shrimp and Corn Salad with Lime-Chile Dressing. Or The Seared Salmon with Baby Greens and Mango Salsa Vinaigrette. Or the Mixed Greens and Radicchio Salad with Grilled Sliced Steak. The Gremolata Dressing with greated lemon zest is a perfect complement to the steak--and certainly not sweet, but not bitter either. This reader and cook thought the Gremolate Dressing was outstanding with the steak. Certainly beats your standard Steak Sauce!

I could go on and on, but if you are a salad lover, don't just take my word for it. Buy the book and sample some of the dozens of scrumptious salads in RAISING THE SALAD BAR. I'd be surprised if you don't agree with me.

Totally inspiring ! Sept. 9 2007

Format: Paperback
This terrific book is full of inspiration. If you are a salad eater, but find that you're stuck in a rut, this wonderfully-illustrated book will crank up your creativity. Great main dish salads and side dishes, too. And not just green salads, but potato, pasta and other grains. I especially love the section on how to make good dressings. A must - and a great gift. Enjoy!

Essential book in my kitchen June 9 2010
By T. Machesney - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had pretty much sworn off of buying new cookbooks because there are so many great internet sources for recipes. I still don't know what came over me the day that I bought it but I am so glad I did! I have since made many of these salads for myself and gatherings and each has ben a huge hit. Many of the recipes are interesting and a little different than the usual, I especially love the fruit and leafy greens combinations. The ingredients are easy to find and preparation is simple enough to do at the last minute. Salads aside, the dressing recipes stand out on their own. I often whip up one of these for whatever veggies I have in the fridge. Seriously, I have never been a dressing whipper-upper before but I haven't served a store bought dressing in the year that I've owned this book! My everyday dressing is the Maple Baslamic Vinaigrette.

Lives up to its ambitions of raising the salad bar Jan. 27 2009
By Chicago Book Addict - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love to make salads for my dinners and lunches. However, I find most salad recipes in cookbooks to be boring or not substantial enough to have as a full meal. Thankfully this book was exactly what I was looking for. There is so much variety contained within it that it's hard to get bored with the recipes. The flavor combinations are so different from recipe to recipe that it's amazing to get such a spectrum of flavor all from salads and all from one cookbook. You'll find not just lettuce salads but salads centered around lentils, pasta, grains and more. They are also perfect to serve either as side dishes or at the center of the plate. I especially enjoy browsing this book because the photographs are beautiful and make you eager to try each recipe.

Best of all, the tastes of the recipes live up to expectations. They come out perfectly as written. I have had great success with every recipe I've tried thus far with my favorites being the Lemony Asparagus and Artichoke Pasta Salad and the Lentil Salad with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette. Both were so good I could easily imagine them on a restaurant menu and found myself licking my plate clean. Given these results I cannot wait to try more recipes including Tabouli Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Parsley and Mint and Thai Quinoa Salad. The only challenge with this cookbook is deciding which salad to make next as each recipe sounds better than the last.

If you love salads and are looking for more variety than what you've found in other books this is certainly the resource for you.

One of the most used cookbooks in my kitchen and I own over 500 cookbooks but this book stands head and shoulders above all the others when it comes to innovative uses of greens and grains plus those marvelous dressings - YUM! My husband and I have enjoyed EVERY recipe I have made from this book and to date I have prepared about half the book so I figure I know what I'm talking about! The only recommendation I would make about any of the recipes is to double the dressing proportions if you decide to throw anything extra into the salads or just to have extra on the side if someone likes more, or save for another salad for lunch the next day. The dressings are delicious and you will find many more applications for them besides just pouring over greens. Recipes are enough for 2-3 big eaters as a complete meal or serve them with a large family dinner as a side dish. Absolutely wonderful flavors and I intend to purchase this book for several family members for Christmas presents this year! Enjoy!
