Salad Love How to Create a Lunchtime Salad, Every Weekday, in 20 Minutes or Less

Salad Love How to Create a Lunchtime Salad, Every Weekday, in 20 Minutes or Less

Author: David Bez Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/07/2019

How many of us are utterly bored with the bland, expensive, unhealthy or just too similar to what we had yesterday lunch at our desks? David Bez is a food lover with a limited lunch break; an Italian who cares about what's on his plate; a designer who knows that you eat with your eyes first. For several years, he has made himself a salad for lunch every day at work, with fresh ingredients, minimum preparation time, and maximum flavour. Day after day, his colleagues peer over his shoulder to watch him craft yet another beautiful salad perfectly balanced in its composition and bound to both satisfy him and energize him for the afternoon ahead. His winning formula for creating salads is to layer a base, vegetables or fruit, fresh herbs, protein toppings and dressings, which creates a perfect salad every time. Clearly marked with a vegetarian, vegan, raw, omnivore or pescatarian designation, every salad is an inspiration and can be adapted to suit a different diet. Fresh, tinned, jarred and pre-cooked ingredients are all explored; seasonality is key and variety keeps things nutritious and exciting.
