Overview

A collection of 60 recipes for turning ordinary salads into one-dish worthy meals.

Does anybody need a recipe to make a salad? Of course not. But if you want your salad to hold strong in your lunch bag or carry the day as a one-bowl dinner, dressing on lettuce isn't going to cut it.

Make way for Mighty Salads, in which the editors of Food52 present sixty salads hefty with vegetables, meats, grains, beans, fish, seafood, pasta, and bread. Think shrimp and radicchio tossed in a bacon vinaigrette, a make-ahead jumble of white beans with charred lemon and fennel, slow-roasted duck and apples scattered across spicy greens. It's comforting food made captivating by simply charring one ingredient or marinating another--shaving some, or roasting a bunch.

But because we don't always follow recipes, there are also loose formulas for confident off-roading, as well as back-pocket tips and genius tricks for improving any old salad. Because once you know how to fix too-salty dressing, wash greens once and for all, keep an avocado from browning, and even sprout your own grains, the humble salad starts looking a lot more interesting--and a whole lot more like dinner.

Cooking: Salad days are here

Food52’s latest contribution to making our cooking lives more joyful is perfect for this time of year, when farmer’s markets are brimming with fresh, locally grown produce. Food 52 Mighty Salads sounds like it might be intended for this summer’s slew of avenging superheroes, but these 60 recipes are here to offer us mere mortals ideas for hefty salads that are great for dinners, lunches and even a few brunches (take a look at the Farro & Golden Beet Salad, topped with Spice-Fried Eggs). Leafy salads, like a Caesar-Style Kale Salad, mix with more hearty ones, like a Grilled Mushroom & Fig Salad; a fall-friendly Shaved Brussels Sprouts, Endive & Apple Salad; an any-season Roasted Chickpea Salad with Za’atar and sensational, hearty seafood and meat combos. Invaluable tips, like a method for long-lasting lettuce storage, shore up your cooking acuity, and each recipe allows for foolproof improvisation with ingredients of your choosing.

COOKING CONFIDENCE
Is the idea of cooking from scratch intimidating? Is your kitchen confidence subpar? Then I have the book for you. Alison Cayne founded Haven’s Kitchen, a cooking school on a leafy street in New York, five years ago. Realizing that many of us grew up disconnected from the kitchen, Cayne decided to rectify that sad state and reconnect her students to the “pride and pleasure of making a meal.” In The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School, a beautifully designed book with elegant, eloquent photos, Cayne does just that, capturing the essence of what her students experience and learn in class. Each of the nine chapters is centered on a dish or an ingredient (e.g. fritters, eggs, soups) and teaches one or more of the key tenets of cooking. And each of the more than 100 recipes is as delicious as it is educational. From a savory Pork Salsa Verde to the classic French dessert Clafoutis, Cayne is your savvy, super-supportive kitchen companion.

TOP PICK IN COOKBOOKS
Stella Parks’ debut cookbook, BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts, is a total wow. And the same goes for Parks herself—a brilliant pastry chef who understands why certain desserts are so distinctly desirable and can translate that understanding into recipes that are thoroughly detailed, yet alluringly doable. Her book includes more than 100 recipes, plus “mix it up” tips for an added 200 variations and gluten-free options, all divine whether you choose simple, salty-sweet Honey-Roasted Peanut Butter Cookies; a velvety, game-changing White Mountain Layer Cake with Parks’ signature silky Marshmallow Buttercream; or her truly magical Magic Key Lime Pie made with DIY condensed milk and graham crackers for the crust. Luscious, almost-edible photographs make Parks’ sweets even more irresistible. An entertaining writer and diligent researcher, she’s replaced ordinary header notes with charming, informative mini-essays with vintage illustrations that explore how many of our traditional American treats—like Oreos, banana pudding, fudge and sprinkles—came to be.
