Vinaigrettes and Other Dressings: 60 Sensational Recipes to Liven Up Greens, Grains, Slaws, and Every Kind of Salad

Vinaigrettes and Other Dressings: 60 Sensational Recipes to Liven Up Greens, Grains, Slaws, and Every Kind of Salad

By Michele Jordan
With this gorgeous and inventive book full of fresh, bright dressings and vibrant vinaigrettes, you can make salads the stars of your meals, rather than just afterthoughts. You can even make salads that are complete one-plate meals, easy to prepare and full of flavor. Mollie Katzen, author of the Moosewood cookbooks, calls lifelong Californian Michele Anna Jordan “the quintessential expert on California cuisine”–and nowhere on earth are salads more celebrated than in California. Michele has been perfecting her salad-making craft over several decades as a chef, caterer, food columnist, and cookbook author. In Vinaigrettes and Other Dressings, she shares her wisdom about the most important element in any salad: its dressing. About half of the recipes in this book are variations on the classic vinegar-and-olive-oil vinaigrette. But Michele takes the vinaigrette formula in surprising and delicious directions, sometimes by using flavored vinegars (either store-bought or flavored by the home cook), sometimes by using dark vs. light or mild vs. strong olive oils, sometimes by switching out the olive oil for another oil, and always by adding flavoring elements like berries, citrus, honey, bacon, nuts, mustard and even wines and sherries.
