Cookbook Review: Food 52’s Mighty Salads

Fast Review: If you’re sick of boring salads? Food 52 is here to rescue you with over sixty mouth watering (anything but boring!) recipes to get you out of that salad rut.

Food 52 was started by Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs. Their goal was to bring people together from every corner of the world to share recipes, ideas, tips, tricks and support. A few years ago, they started a column on the website called “Not Sad Desk Lunch” and this book is one of the results of that movement.

The pictures inside will inspire you to branch out from the typical Cobb salad, motivate you away from the standard panzanella, and energize you to to step out of your comfort zone in exchange for a flavorful new world of mighty salads.
