Today marks the last day of the food blogging challenge for Patricia Wells’ new cookbook, Salad as a Meal. I can’t say how highly I recommend this book. The recipes are straightforward, the ingredients fresh, the results tasty.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this challenge, especially getting to know the other bloggers who participated. I’ve also had fun reading all of your comments and I hope our two-way communication will continue now that the challenge is over.
There are a few more of Patricia’s recipes that I have permission to publish, but haven’t tried yet. I’ll be making them over the next few months and will write about them when I do. For example, I’m not going to attempt the Lobster Salad with Green Beans, Apple and Avocado until our annual trip to Maine in August. Nothing can match fresh Maine lobster!
Here’s a quick recap of the recipes I’ve written about from Salad as a Meal:
- Egg Crepes
- Asian Chicken Salad with Asparagus and Sesame
- Quinoa Salad with Spinach, Parsley and Spring Onions
- Crab Salad with Lime and Avocado
- Cobb Salad: Iceberg, Tomato, Avocado, Bacon and Blue Cheese
- Ham and Cheese Bread
- Rancho Salad with Avocado Chile-Salsa
- Raoul’s Shrimp Salad
- Greek Salad with Home-Cooked Chickpeas
- Ricotta, Parmesan and Lemon Zest Terrine with Fresh Tomato Sauce
- Chickpea Flour Crepes: Socca
- Poached Turkey Breast Salad with Lemon, Capers, Cornichons and Mint
Congratulations to the two winners of our Salad as a Meal cookbook giveaway – Jenn Augustson of Avon, NC and Dhanyo Merillat-Bowers of Frisco, NC. I hope they enjoy cooking from the book as much as I do.
Finally, I’d like to say a big thanks to Patricia Wells for writing the cookbook and to Tavia Kowalchuk and Megan Traynor of HarperCollins Publishers for their endless support during the challenge. Patricia is currently on tour promoting the book; here is her schedule. I’m hoping to attend one of the events in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area in early May. Maybe I’ll see you there!
