I loved the format, the pictures and the recipes look fantastic. I never have a good side salad or vegetarian entree and this book makes me want to eat more veggies!!!! This will be a beautiful gift as well as a treasured cook book for most.

Each recipe includes beautiful, mouth watering photos. Index organized by ingredient so you can pick what you'd like to make (genius!) Recipes are divided by geographical region, would want to venture and try a recipe or two. Only concern: recipe ingredients and steps look a littkr complex or hard to find.

Neighborhood is a 'salad-as-a-meal' recipe book full of delicious-looking salads with a wide array of exciting ingredients in surprising combinations. There are sixty-ish salad recipes, and ideas for using leftover salads that look good enough to be featured meals themselves. A favorite feature in cookbooks of mine, substitution suggestions, are included and can help to tailor a salad towards your/your family's tastes.

This book does feature mainly grains and vegetables, but it does not state that it is a vegetarian cookbook. Also, the recipes usually include a dressing or topping, and could serve as a good base for adding meats and more cheeses if you absolutely must.

Sections of recipes are separated geographically:
Dear America
So Frenchie
Into the Mediterranean
East, Meet West
To Asia With Love
This is Australia

and also includes a dessert section:

Just Bring Dessert

There are many standout recipes, and I was almost always surprised by the photographs, as they did not resemble how I imagined that they would look

Looks packed with flavour, and well worth a read.

Quite enjoyed the photography and recipes! I cooked a few of them for my wife and the smells emitting from the kitchen had her licking her lips and coming to see when it was ready. We both enjoyed the PHO NOODLE SALAD WITH TOFU, NAPA CABBAGE, AND BROCCOLINI and the LEBANESE STEWED GREEN BEANS AND CHICKPEAS WITH SPINACH PILAF. So delicious!

Beautiful cookbook with color photos of most of the recipes. All of the recipes look beautifully prepared, even though some of the ingredients might not be every day items. I think this will be a great book for the library collection.

My husband and I eat salads twice a week. He is fine have lettuce, tomato and cucumber salad topped with a protein. i am the "experimental" one in our family who will try anything once. As my family has always said I look for the strangest this item on the menu and that is what I order. So keep that in mind when I say I didn't see a salad in this cookbook that I wouldn't want to try. At first glance the recipes look long and involved. But you have to remember that these are not your every day ordinary side salads. These are the salads that are going to be your meal. While she not only offers recipes for the salads, there is a yummy dressing recipe to accompany each salad as well. And she seems to know that not all of us want to scour town for those more obscure ingredients as she has added substitute ingredients for us to use. This book may not be for everyone, but if you love a good salad and are bored with the same old lettuce and tomato, take a look.

Thanks Netgalley for providing me with the digital copy of this book.
