The prospect of making a meal out of a fresh, light salad is particularly appealing in these, the dog days, but the creative selection of dishes in Salad Suppers offers satisfying possibilities for every season. Recipes featuring ripe tomatoes and corn, or those like seared scallop salad with zucchini and carrots, are perfect for summer; but for fall there are options like Turkey Salad with Apples and Wild Rice, for winter, bean, grain, and roasted root vegetable salads, and for spring, light and fresh dishes featuring ingredients like baby lettuces and asparagus. A great selection of recipes for innovative salad dressings is also included.

Prolific cookbook author Chesman offers a lively collection of main-dish salads for both light and heartier meals. When ripe tomatoes or fresh peas are not available, she turns to sturdier vegetables and beans and grains for inspiration. There's Thai-Style Crab and Asparagus Salad for spring and Tomato Salad with Corn for the height of summer, Turkey Salad with Wild Rice and Apples for autumn, and Warm Lentil Salad with Roasted Onions for cold winter months. Chesman offers a change of pace for supper; recommended. [A selection of BOMC's The Good Cook.]
