This is a book with many recipes. I love creating great meals for my family
and friends. I wrote this book so I could share my hints, tips, recipes and
creations so that you too can incorporate more fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and
especially leafy green vegetables into your life. Who knows what kind of magic
will happen in your life as a result of mindful nutrition?

This book makes no warranties, guarantees or promises to heal any illness nor
does it promise that it will keep you young, make you look better, feel better,
cure diseases, prevent diseases or stop the symptoms or signs of conditions or illnesses.

If you have questions about your own state of health it is always a good idea
to consult people whom you trust, medicos, other health professionals or even a
nutritional consultant. Perhaps you need to be reminded to ‘consult your physician’.

Enjoy your discovery into introducing (more) salads into your eating plans.
Make it your way of life and it’s extremely likely that you will be rewarded!
And… if you’ve enjoyed even just some of the salads and dressings and dips
in this book, then I would greatly appreciate a positive review!

Introduction: No More Boring Salads!
Salads are under-rated by many. Many people treat them as the ‘thing on the
side that you should eat’ and they eat a hot meal as their main nutrition. I know
because that used to be me! But salads can be the most amazing main part of
your meal and I want to show you how!

This book was written especially for the uninspired and salad-bored majority
who are tired of the same old lettuce, tomato, onion concoction with a few
embellishments. Maybe you have a store-bought dressing or 2 in your fridge that
you use for every vegetable combination. No wonder the salad pizzazz has gone.
Or maybe it was never there.

Well! Worry no more. There is a way out from the tedium. You can make
incredible salads with less than a handful of ingredients in total, that will knock
your proverbial socks off! And you can make sophisticated salads that will
delight your taste buds too.

Your satisfaction is only limited by your willingness to experiment and
appreciate the many ideas and guidelines in this book.

But making salads is just half the story! What you dress your salad with can
revitalize your palate and revolutionize your meals. When you use interesting,
scrumptious dressings, they can transform just about ANY vegetable into the
taste sensation you have been craving.

In this book you’ll find a range of salads. From the simple to the sophisticated
in terms of numbers of ingredients and complexity and types of inclusions. What
will really get your appetite going is when you discover the world of dressings
(including salsas and dips) and how to pair them with your salads.
This is why you’ll find more dressings and dips in this book than the actual salad recipes.

I hope you are inspired to know that you can eat a salad with just about any
vegetable in it. You can choose your ingredients based on creating deliciously
nutritious blends. But rest assured, that even if you find yourself with little more
than the humble lettuce, onion and tomato in your fridge one day, that you’ll find
a cornucopia of amazing things to dress them with – and be excited about it.

What about my salad-phobic children?
What children are served when they are very young really can pave the way to
the tastes that they develop (naturally). Because of the cultural leanings and fast
food availability (which have become cultural habits) many children are saladresistant
and don’t eat nearly enough raw vegetables and fruit and green leafy vegetables.

Your journey with your children in mind, will involve finding innovative ways
to tempt them. You may find simple vegetable sticks with crazy, delicious and
interesting dips and thicker dressings could be the key.

The other wonderful way is to front load them with green smoothies. These
are pretty much salads in a glass that are extremely kid-friendly (aka peoplefriendly)
that provide the nutrition along with the sweetness of fruit. I have
found with my own family that using green smoothies has made our daughter
way more interested in experimenting with salads. My goal of providing her
with the best nutrition I can is made so much easier.

If you need a quick, easy and delicious stepping stone to incredible nutrition,
then please also take a look at my other book called “Green Smoothie Magic”.
It’s a bestseller that has been delighting thousands around the world.

This series of cooking and food preparation books is something that I am in
the throes of creating, that combines my love of great food, simplicity and ease.
It’s important to me that the recipes are highly adaptable to you and your needs
and that you can find just about any of the ingredients within these pages at your
supermarket and your local farmers’ market.
So, let’s take a look at sensational salads...
