Salmagundi is a 17th-century English word denoting a salad dish comprising, well, everything. The nearest modern equivalent is Fiambre, a Guatemalan salad containing in excess of twenty ingredients. This comprehensive new book from acclaimed author Sally Butcher looks at salad bowls across the world in 150 recipes. The recipes feature a number of archaic, traditional and staple dishes - and a whole lot of funky new stuff as well.

Divided into fourteen chapters (Herbs and Leaves; Vegetables; Beans; Roots; Grains and Pasta, Rice, Cheese, Fish, Meat, Dips, Fruity Salads, Salads for Pudding, The Dressing Room, The Prop Cupboard), no stone is left unturned in pursuit of the ultimate salad recipe. Recipes are flagged where relevant with tags such as `super-healthy' or `skinny-minny' or `main course' to make it more user-friendly. Seasoned with Sally's trademark mixture of folklore and anecdotes, and with photography from renowned food photographer Yuki Sugiura, this is an essential update for the foodie bookshelf.

I love cooking, and eating, Middle Eastern food and already have numerous recipe books on this region, but ‘Salmagundi’s’ focus solely on salads offers something extra to the ones that I already I have. As half of my... More

This is a beautful book and so full of inspiration that it makes me feel like an idiot when i think of the bland salads and combinations of fresh produce i've eaten in the past.
Some ingredients are a bit exotic... More
