A big thanks to Ashley to hosting our Raising the Salad Bar get together.
General thoughts on this selection:
– Ingredients were easy to find and versatile for many of her recipes.
– We were all introduced to at least one new ingredient. I will be adding wheat berries as a pantry staple.
– Dressings were so easy to prepare- done buying store bought.
– It is a very easy book to cook from- for whatever flavor profile suits your fancy.
Come to think about it- I’m pretty sure there weren’t any real gripes about this cookbook…. aside from a couple disgruntled husbands who lack imagination in the salad department.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves salads- or doesn’t- may this would change their mind.
On to the good stuff… the food. For everyone who was not there- here were all the delightful things we ate.
I brought the curried wheat berry salad with pistacios and coconut. (with almonds and no coconut)
Ashley made Lemony Asparagus and Artichoke Pasta Salad.
A very satisfying meeting- it’s always fun to get together and I actually walked away feeling like I ate a vegetable or two- which I suppose I did. Can’t wait to see everyone in September!
