"Salad Love" Book Review

I love a good salad.  Seriously.  It floats my boat!  Which is hilarious since I'm the farthest thing from a "healthy food person."  Haha!  But I was more than happy to review this book full of salad recipes to give me some new and fresh ideas!

So here's what I love about this book:
1.)  The pictures!!! - There's a picture for EVERY SALAD.  All 260 of them!  I love that!  The best way to get me interested in a new recipe is to let me see what the finished product looks like.
2.) Each one has a homemade dressing recipe. - And most of them are pretty simple, involving mostly items I already have in the pantry or fridge!
3.) Its divided by season! -  Most cookbooks are divided by main dish, side dish appetizer, etc. or by meat recipe, vegetarian, vegan, etc.  But this one is by season!  How amazing is that!  And since its a salad book, full of produce, it makes PERFECT sense!
4.) Every recipe is labeled - Pescatarian, Vegan, Vegetarian, Omnivore, Raw... You can easily see what each recipe is!  That makes it so easy to go find what you'd like!  Also, each recipe has an "alternative." For example, The Roasted Eggplant, Chickpeas, & Pomegranate salad recipe is Vegan, but if you replace the soy yogurt with Green yogurt, it becomes Vegetarian.

This book is beautiful and well thought out!  Definitely a must for any salad lover!

I received a copy of this book, free of charge, from Blogging for Books, in exchange for my honest review.
