Description: In the Mediterranean, salad doesn't only mean leafy greens: salad can be anything from roasted eggplant with tahini dressing to white beans bathed in a lemony vinaigrette. Invited by the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley to show students that there is more to salads than the salad bar, Joyce Goldstein created a course that has inspired Mediterranean Fresh, a book like no other.
Drawing on her years spent investigating Mediterranean cuisines, Joyce provides 110 recipes for salads and 30 recipes for salad dressings to mix and match. These recipes will enable you to expand knowledge you already possess: roasted peppers can be Italian with anchovies and olives or Tunisian and spicy with harissa dressing. Beets and greens can move to France with a walnut vinaigrette, and even sliced carrots can become exotic with a Moroccan citrus- cinnamon dressing. And all can become more substantial meals with the addition of a protein such as grilled shrimp or roasted chicken.
Along the way, Joyce teaches you the art of dressing a salad and how to transform dressings into marinades, spreads, dips, and finishing sauces. You'll learn how to taste, balance flavors, and develop your palate from this master of Mediterranean cooking.
Among the book's unique features are its illustrated glossary of fresh greens, 75 color photos of finished meals, and an essay on pairing wines with salads.
