Rated 5 out of 5 by from so yum! I love the recipes in this. Every time I made a salad and prepare a dressing from this book, my friends rave at the deliciousness of my salad. This book is a hit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great inspiration! This is a book for inspiration on making salads at home; with ideas on how to make the type of meal that would run $12 at the local gourmet salad bar. Even the standards such as Caesar salad feel dressed up and interesting. And the dressing options all sound so great compared to anything you can buy in a store. My one complaint is that while the photos are nice, in this day and age I do sort of expect a picture of every recipe and there are some long chunks with no pictures. The dressings would have been even more appealing with images! That said, I liked this enough that I bought it after borrowing it from the library.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Salad Samurai Really delicious salad recipes that are definitely not boring. I just found that the author tends to use strange/hard to find ingredients at times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gives new life to boring salads This book is a real eye opener if you've been used to lettuce salads! Think of Caesar - romaine lettuce and stale bread cubes! This will up your expectations! The recipes are grouped into seasons which helps (however, when you live in the boonies as I do, then some fresh ingredients may be hard to get in the winter - radicchio? Forget it!) I haven't made a salad in this book yet that I didn't like. Try Gingery Beets and Lentils and Tempeh Rubenesque Salad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new take on many favourites I'm really enjoying this book....I love the flavours, and the presentations...might have like the cover to be brighter, but one doesn't eat the covers, right?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book . Easy to Follow Recipes. Lot's of fun options I am so happy with this book. The salad recipes are very creative and have lots of diverse flavours. I've made a few things out of it and it's all turned out really well! She does have a couple of recipes at the end of the book that I think don't really go with the theme so I'd rather have had more salad switch up ideas but that's the only thing I'd change.

Editorial Reviews

Portland Oregonian, 8/7/14“[A] collection of hearty entrée salads, featuring flavorful greens, an array of inventive toppings, and delicious, from-scratch dressings. While the recipes are all vegan, there's plenty here for non-vegans to love, especially if they're trying to incorporate more vegetables into their diet for health or sustainability. People with big appetites will love the generous portions, which can often be stretched into the next day's lunch. And Romero includes ‘Samurai Stylings' with many of her recipes, offering suggestions for substitutions that will keep things from becoming routineRomero has a great voice, and her enthusiastic headnotes draw readers into the recipes.”Hudson Valley News, 7/30/14“A perfect gift book for the foodie on your list.”Huffington Post, 8/25/14“Romero rounds up a big world of fusion and flavors for 100 cutting-edge saladsSalad Samurai recipes are bold, but totally doable.
