From bag to table, healthy salads have never been easier.
You’ve always known that eating green could be healthy, and now it’s easier than ever. With the abundance of supermarket selections of prepackaged greens, you can create a restaurant-style salad?along with a fabulous dressing?in your own kitchen.
Before bagged blends, a salad with four different types of lettuces was unheard of. Now there are more than fifty different combinations of lettuces, packaged in just the right size, from which to choose. Think beyond iceberg and romaine. The more than one hundred salads and dressings in Simply Salads are colorful, gourmet, and surprisingly simple to prepare. Whether you’re looking for the perfect complement to a main dish or you want a salad that can stand as an entrée, you’ll find the perfect salad, including such winners as:
- Asian Salad with Ginger Dressing and Wasabi Peas (page 4)
- Jalapeño Chicken Salad with Avocado Dressing (page 40)
- Crawfish Salad with Spicy Cajun Remoulade (page 106)
- Cheese Tortellini Salad with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette (page 172)
- Memphis Mustard Cole Slaw (page 223)
Host of Cooking Channel’s Kelsey’s Essentials and fan favorite on season four of The Next Food Network Star, Kelsey Nixon shares the essential recipes, techniques, and tools that new home cooks need in their back pocket.
A young food star and new mom, Kelsey is an invaluable friend in the kitchen to everyone settling into their first kitchen of their own. Her recipes, which are broken down into simple steps, teach readers how to cook, highlighting key tools and basic techniques everyone should know. And yet her flavors are anything but basic; Kelsey gives everyone the confidence to start with the 2.0 version of a recipe instead of the boring standards. For example, she makes her house pilaf with quinoa instead of rice, and her addictive fruit salad is a savory first course instead of a lackluster dessert.

Coffee Is More Than Just a Necessary Morning Beverage or Afternoon Pick-Me-Up!
Coffee. Joe. Java. Liquid gold. Whatever you call it, coffee is one of the most popular beverages not only in the country, but all around the world. Coffee has been shown to have great health benefits, but many people only use it in its most common form: brewed as a hot drink.
But coffee is so much more than that! Thanks to varying origins of beans and differences in the roasting process, coffee offers a wide range of flavors and undertones, which means there’s a coffee bean you can use in just about anything. From new coffee drinks to chocolate cupcakes and spicy tacos, coffee adds a depth of flavor to every dish.
In Cooking with Coffee, popular Internet blogger Brandi Evans discusses the history of coffee, different brewing options, and ways to make the best coffee in your own home. She then provides more than sixty recipes featuring brewed coffee, ground coffee beans, or instant espresso so you’ll never run out of reasons to have coffee in your pantry. Recipes include:
Orange mocha pudding cups
Multigrain waffles with vanilla maple glaze
Coffee caramel sauce
Spiced roasted nuts
