I was really excited to receive a copy of "Simply Salads" by Jennifer Chandler to review for my blog. I just love salads and I am always "game" to try new ones.
"Simply Salads" has over 100 salad recipes, sure to fit anyone's taste. Such a huge selection of recipes from simple to extravagant and each has a fabulous picture that will leave your mouth watering and your tummy grumbling.
Jennifer does an excellent job of explaining the "Salad Blends" so you know exactly what is in your salad. She also gives you a complete list of "must have" kitchen utensils and ingredients to make your salad preparation simple.
"Simply Salads" is broken down into these categories:
*Beans, Grains, Rice and Pasta
*Vinaigrettes and Dressings
Take a look at this Taco Salad (page 65):
BLT Salad (page 62):
A couple of my favorites were the Shrimp Tossed with Herb Salad, Greek Salad and the Old-Fashioned Cole Slaw. There are still so many I want to try. Plus, the vinaigrettes and dressings are so tasty. I've used some of them for other recipes.
I am going to strongly recommend that you go out today and buy "Simply Salads" by Jennifer Chandler. It is a perfect addition to my collection of recipe books and I know it would be for yours, too.
Simply Salads is now available nationwide in fine book stores and at Amazon.com.

(Nashville, Tenn.) With the popularity of gourmet salads on the rise, from five-star restaurants to fast food chains, salads are becoming much more than boring, diet food or the preview to a meal. Salads are a delectable, healthy and quick alternative, as well as, a meal’s main event.
A recent study done by the UCLA School of Public Health and Louisiana State University Health Services Center found that eating just one salad a day may have more health benefits than originally thought. People who consume at least one salad a day have a higher level of nutrients responsible for a healthy immune system, and reducing the risk of heart disease and obesity. Eating a salad a day could quite possibly be the easiest way to improve your overall health and with all of the variety of fresh packaged salad blends in local stores it has never been easier to make a deliciously simple salad for any meal.
