“Part relational art, part self-discovery, Salad for President turns our notion of ‘salad’ on its head in a funny, beautiful, and most personal way.” ―Bon Appétit

In this beautifully designed, full-color cookbook, the creator of the immensely popular Salad for President blog presents a visually rich collection of more than 75 salad recipes, with contributions and interviews by artists/creative professionals like William Wegman, Tauba Auerbach, Laurie Anderson, and Alice Waters.

Julia Sherman loves salad. In the book named for her popular blog, Sherman encourages her readers to consider salad an everyday indulgence that can include cocktails, soups, family style brunch dishes, and dinner-party entrées. Every part of the meal is reimagined with a fresh, vegetable obsessed perspective. This compendium of savory recipes will tempt readers in search of diverse offerings from light to hearty organized by season. Recipes include:
  • Collard Chiffonade Salad with Roasted Garlic Dressing and Crouton Crumble
  • Heirloom Tomatoes with Crunchy Polenta Croutons
  • Flank Steak and Bean Sprouts with Miso-Kimchi Dressing
  • Grilled Hearts of Palm with Mint and Triple Citrus
  • Golden Crispy Lotus Root with Asian Pear and Yuzu Dressing
  • Shaved Cauliflower and Candy Cane Beet Salad with Seared Arctic Char
  • Curly Carrots with Candied Cumin
  • And many more!
The recipes, while not exclusively vegetarian, are vegetable-forward and focused on high-quality seasonal produce. Sherman also includes insider tips on pantry staples and growing your own salad garden of herbs and greens. Salad—with its infinite possibilities—is a game of endless combinations, not stifling rules.

And with that in mind, Salad for President offers a window into how artists approach preparing their favorite dishes. She visits sculptors, painters, photographers, and musicians in their homes and gardens, interviewing and photographing them as they cook.

Utterly unique in its look into the worlds of food, art, and everyday practices, Salad for President is at once a practical resource for healthy, satisfying recipes and an inspiring look at creativity.
