"Elevates salads from the quotidian to the thrilling."
--The New York Times
A "saladish" recipe is like a salad, and yet so much more. It starts with an unexpectedly wide range of ingredients, such as Japanese eggplants, broccoli rabe, shirataki noodles, Bosc pears, and chrysanthemum leaves. It emphasizes contrasting textures--toothsome, fluffy, crunchy, crispy, hefty. And marries contrasting flavors--rich, sharp, sweet, and salty. Toss all together and voil an irresistible symphony that's at once healthy and utterly delicious.
Cooking the saladish way has been Ilene Rosen's genius since she unveiled the first kale salad at New York's City Bakery almost two decades ago, and now she shares 100 fresh and creative recipes, organized seasonally, from the intoxicatingly aromatic (Toasty Broccoli with Curry Leaves and Coconut) to the colorfully hearty (Red Potatoes with Chorizo and Roasted Grapes). Each chapter includes a fun party menu, a timeline of preparation, and an illustrated tablescape to turn a saladish meal into an impressive dinner party spread.
