“Jeanne’s book is a brilliant new take on salads—smart, thoughtful and full of stunning flavor combinations.”
—Kim Boyce, author of the James Beard Award–winning Good to the Grain
“Jeanne Kelley is not like you and me. Her real genius is in assemblage, the ability to transform a seemingly random plateful of vegetation into a composition perfectly evocative of the season, and the gift of Salad for Dinner is that it lets us do the same.”
—Jonathan Gold, Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist for L.A. Weekly
“Jeanne Kelley shows you how to make a salad that will rock your dinner table. From growing your own to foraging greens, Kelley expands your salad horizons."
—Erik Knutzen, co-author of The Urban Homestead and Making It: Radical Home Ec for a Post Consumer World
“Since southern California is one of the world's great salad bowls, both in terms of its superb produce and the cross-polinating ethnic variety of its population, you couldn't possibly find a better cook than Los Angeles–based Jeanne Kelley to help you discover its culinary bounty. She’s also a serious but very charming writer, and this beautifully produced book should be sold with a spatter-guard, since it's one that will live in the kitchen."
—Alexander Lobrano, Saveur writer and author of Hungry for Paris
“Jeanne’s homage to salads is wonderful. I love the clean, simple sophistication of the cookbook, and the recipes are innovative as well as informative. This book is like a salad ‘bible,’ and will inspire you to cook, garden, entertain, and appreciate all the joys of living. This is no coffeetable book—it will stay in your kitchen at all times.”
—Suzanne Tracht, Chef/Owner of Jar, Los Angeles, Top Chef Masters star, and Food and Wine Best New Chef.
"The photos are lavish; the recipes are both imaginative and easy to follow."
San Diego Magazine
"...this is simply a book you really want to cook from. There is a fantastic glossary of greens that tells you about those market finds and what to do with it, followed by a primer on how to build a great salad."
