‘Salads can be anything you want them to be’ says Fi Buchanan.
In Seasonal Salads she showcases 52 mouthwatering recipes, one for every week of the year. Here it is, a book that celebrates salads in all their seasonal glory.
There are hearty winter feasts (think Spice Roasted Carrots) as well as summer favourites (like Watermelon with Lime Sherbet or Chargrilled Corn with Ranch Dressing).There are classics and twists on classics, quick weeknight salads and dinner-party-worthy creations.
What these recipes all have in common is Fi’s trademark inventive flair, her ability to combine flavours and textures in the cleverest of ways to make the most of what’s plentiful in each season.
If you thought salads were something you served on the side, it’s time to turn over a new leaf.
