As author Chantal Lascaris says, it’s time for the salad to take centre stage! Traditionally salads have been viewed as side dishes, but those featured in The Ultimate Salad Book, are anything but as they move boldly into the realm of main dishes. And nobody knows better how to achieve this than Chantal as she presents this delicious collection featuring international flavours to the South African kitchen. Although the salads are simple, they are nourishing and boast plenty of nutrient-dense ingredients including leafy green vegetables, whole grains, seafood, poultry, beans, nuts and fruit. What’s more, they can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert.
