Lettuce in Your Kitchen: Flavorful And Unexpected Main-Dish Salads And Dressings by Christopher Schlesinger,John Willoughby



Bestselling cookbook authors Schlesinger and Willoughby present ideas for 100 fresh main-dish salads tossed up with such surprising ingredients as spiced pecans, black beans, and smoked salmon. 8-pp color photo insert.

Coauthors Chris Schlesinger and John "Doc" Willoughby have written what might be the definitive volume on salads. Everything from the history of greens-they appear in Egyptian tomb drawings that are at least 4,500 years old-to a myriad of recipes is included. And these aren't iceberg-lettuce salads smothered in Thousand Island dressing, either. The authors believe in the full-meal deal in which salads can be appetizer, entree, or even dessert. The authors of Lettuce in Your Kitchen are far better known for their grilling cookbooks than for the vegetable plate. Let me point out one omission that may make a difference to you: to Schlesinger and Willoughby, a salad encompasses some sort of greens, even if it's only as a garnish. The authors believe in the full-meal deal in which salads can be appetizer, entree, or even dessert

How to Cook Meat By Christopher Schlesinger, John Willoughby.

In Lettuce in Your Kitchen, Chris Schlesinger and John "Doc" Willoughby toss the traditional meal of meat-starch-vegetables into a mountain of greens, full of great textures and new flavors, turning on its head forever our old-fashioned notion of the perfect one-dish meal.Here are salads for every appetite: big salads to satisfy a dinner crowd like Baby Asian Greens with Ginger-Rubbed Chicken and Apricots; fancy salads like Arugula with Sauteed Softshell Crabs and Toast Points for a dressier occasion; and purely vegetable salads like Spinach Salad with Peppers, Eggplant, and Roasted Garlic for absolutely every day.Chris and Doc's 100 dressings are astoundingly versatile (ginger-soy, curry-lime, sweet-sour bacon, and charred tomato, to name a few) and do double duty as dips for grilled breads or raw vegetables, drizzled on baked potatoes, or brushed on grilled fish or roast chicken.Simple additions bring new depths of flavor to your salads: watercress, purslane, and parsley, with their mild, slightly grassy flavors, are high on the list of great greens. The authors show how "cooking greens" - like kale, collard, turnip, and mustard greens - in their baby state add intensity to a salad. To make your life even easier, each recipe suggests substitute greens.This complete salad companion contains all the soon-to-be-cherished tips on salad making, including how to resuscitate wilted greens and how to roast garlic to perfection. Most of all, it tells you how to create salads that are simple to prepare, complex in presentation, and always special in taste.

The authors of Lettuce in Your Kitchen are far better known for their grilling cookbooks than for the vegetable plate. That's a darned shame, because this cookbook is an excellent resource for those of us who want to add something more to the meal than a standard greens-and-vinegarette.

Let me point out one omission that may make a difference to you: to Schlesinger and Willoughby, a salad encompasses some sort of greens, even if it's only as a garnish. As a result, you won't find a whole chapter of pasta salads or a dozen potato salads. That's fine with me, but you should be clear about what to expect.

What you SHOULD expect are clearly written recipes for salads that you probably wouldn't have invented by yourself. The book is organized by simple salads; salads for the perfect tomato; vegetable salads; salads with meat and fish; main course salads; salads with exotic flavors; fancy salads; and salads for a crowd. It's prefaced by an extrememly useful section in which the various greens are identified (with line drawings -- not quite as useful as a photo but it works), and categories that help you discover that, should your market be out of spinach, you can use baby chard or baby beet greens instead. The book has only a few photos, but they're enough for inspiration.

But what about their recipes? I've tried two with excellent success, and I have a list of additional salads to try. My "starter salad" for Thanksgiving was watercress salad with plums and scallions and a hoisin-based dressing. (Most of the dressings are more than you need, and the authors suggest that, say, the hoisin dressing is a good dip for veggies or with roast chicken.) Every plate was cleaned off, even the token non-foodie (he was instructed that he could NOT bring his own Budweiser to the meal). I also truly enjoyed the salad of Boston lettuce, mango, cucumber and avocado, served with a creamy orange-spice dressing. It was no harder to put toghether than the mundane green salad you'd bring to a buffet, and far more tasty!

Naturally, you can get less exotic (escarole with bacon, eggs, and potatoes) or far more so (arugula with lobster and pancetta with a smooth avocado dressing).

But they all have one thing in common: they're VERY easy to put together. And, if you buy the ingredients in season and avoid the handful of expensive items (Mesclun with grilled fois gras, pears, and maui onion with port wine dressing?), it'll be a snap to pull together a meaningful meal with very little effort.

I'm sold on this book. I think you'll like it, too.

One of my must have "cook books" , I bought this copy for my oldest girl. It has lots of dressing recipes too.

I bought this book to replace a copy that mysteriously disappeared (someone obviously liked it too much!). The recipes truly are flavorful and unexpected and have helped me lose weight, end salad-boredom, tempt people who "never" eat salad, and earn a reputation as a super salad chef. Whether you need a refreshing main course for a hot summer day, or just some extra veggies in your diet, this book offers more ideas than you can imagine!

I have sent this book to almost everyone I know and love. It is probably the best cookbook I own. The recipes are unfailingly delicious and unique. And healthy!! My only concern, given that it's out of print, is that one day I won't be able to find it any more to send to people!!

I had bought the hardcover book years ago for my daughter. While visiting her recently I looked at all the recipes an decided I needed one. The salad recipes are divided into catorgories and look delicious. Can not wait to try many.

This is a great salad book. I never thougt certain ingredients would taste so good with leafy greens. I highly recommend.
This is a delightfully, unexpectedly good cookbook. I bought it on Amazon used based on another reviewer's recommendation to purchase this book instead of another book I had been considering. I am VERY glad that I took that advice!

These dressings alone will rock your world. Each one I make is better than the last. The lime and peanut sauce over napa cabbage, a stupid-simple green goddess to make lettuce gorgeous, orange-y little vinaigrettes. I do find them to be a little bit heavy on the olive oil for current palettes, but I swap apple juice for some of the oil and they end up just fine.

I am going to buy copies of this for every CSA-buying, farmer's market-perusing, salad-eating hippie in my life. And there are a billion used copies for a penny plus shipping. Can't go wrong.
