Salad Love – Book Review

Do you enjoy the fresh crunch of delicious salads but tire of eating the same ingredients all of the time?

Would you like to create more innovative, healthier salads using the freshest, seasonal ingredients available, but aren’t sure where to begin?

If so, you need to add Salad Love by David Bez to your cookbook collection!

Salad Love provides readers with lessons on the basics of salad-making (an essential skill set if you want to be a creative salad maker) and provides stunning photographs and ingredient lists, dressing instructions and tips for 260 imaginative, inviting salads!

David divides the salads categorically by seasons, and labels them by dietary preference (raw, vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, and omnivore) for ease of use.

What’s most amazing about this book is that David – a professional Art Director with no formal culinary training – created each of these salads during his lunch hour – at his desk – as part of a personal challenge to eat a daily, healthy lunch.

David Bez

As David says:

I started eating salads in the office because I wanted something healthy for my lunch. And I wanted something easy to prepare, easy enough to prepare at my desk. I’ve been creating a new salad every single day for 2 years as a challenge…

It wasn’t long before his salads captivated his co-workers attention. The response was so positive, he started photographing and blogging about them. This book – Salad Love – developed as a result.

As of February 2015, Salad Love has been translated into 19 languages and is being published in various countries all around the world. Currently, Salad Love is the #1 Amazon Best Seller in the Salad Cooking category.

For the longest time, I’ve been looking for a book that could help me to improve my salad-making skills and provide me with creative ideas for making fresh, healthy salads year-round.

Salad Love by David Bez is that book.

I highly recommend this book to you and rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    I could use some “fresh” ideas for salads, I have been seeing lots of salads made a ahead in mason jars, thought that was a time saver.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Girl, you are gonna have my husband strangle me, all these books…I want them! We do salad bar here at home often. The kids love it, and I can enjoy it too, gluten free. This looks so cool, I am pinning this to remember, I think I really like this guy! And I love salad, especially in the spring and summer! Thanks!

      This book is amazing Nikki! You will definitely want to add it to your collection (don’t tell your husband I said that, lol)!
      In the meantime, be sure to check out his website!

      And, did you see the gluten-free cake link I sent you? You can literally have your cake and eat it too! 🙂

      • Thanks for that! I have not attempted to bake yet, there are so many items needed to replace flour that it seems like it sucks all the fun out of it! LOL! My daughter wants to be a baker when she grows up and we discussed getting a gluten free baking book, your timing again is perfect.

    This is so needed. I’ve been eating clean aka plant-based for 1.5 years now. I got really sick of salads so basically went on hiatus. I’m going to buy this book because I need new creative ideas. Thanks.

      You’re welcome Caryn! What I love most about this book is not only the 260 fabulous ideas and photos but the INSTRUCTION David provides so that in the future I will know how to design and create my own combos! 🙂

    As a huge salad lover, I was delighted that you turned me on to Salad Love by sharing it at the Plant-Based Potluck Party!

Again thank you for sharing this “good read”. I appreciate it! I am pinning and sharing this! All the best, Deborah
