Salad for President


This debut cookbook by Julia Sherman, author of the popular Salad for President blog, is at once a practical resource for healthy, satisfying recipes and an inspiring look at creativity. Based on a love for salad and its endless, rule-breaking possibilities, this visually rich collection presents more than seventy-five recipes and encourages readers to consider salad as an everyday indulgence that can include soups, family-style brunch dishes, dinner-party entrées, and even cocktails. This compendium of fresh, vegetable-obsessed recipes is a window into the way artists and creatives like William Wegman, Tauba Auerbach, and Alice Waters approach preparing their favorite dishes. Sherman’s interviews and photographs from her visits to the homes and gardens of sculptors, painters, photographers, and musicians, offer an utterly unique look into the worlds of food, art, and everyday practices.
