A salad-and-dressing lover's treasury of easy, creative, and dynamic salads and dressings includes simple tossed salads, all-vegetable creations, and substantial entrees, as well as information on choosing and cleaning greens and on dozens of non-salad uses for dressings.

In Lettuce in Your Kitchen, Chris Schlesinger and John "Doc" Willoughby toss the traditional meal of meat-starch-vegetables into a mountain of greens, full of great textures and new flavors, turning on its head forever our old-fashioned notion of the perfect one-dish meal.
Here are salads for every appetite: big salads to satisfy a dinner crowd like Baby Asian Greens with Ginger-Rubbed Chicken and Apricots; fancy salads like Arugula with Sauteed Softshell Crabs and Toast Points for a dressier occasion; and purely vegetable salads like Spinach Salad with Peppers, Eggplant, and Roasted Garlic for absolutely every day.
Chris and Doc's 100 dressings are astoundingly versatile (ginger-soy, curry-lime, sweet-sour bacon, and charred tomato, to name a few) and do double duty as dips for grilled breads or raw vegetables, drizzled on baked potatoes, or brushed on grilled fish or roast chicken.
Simple additions bring new depths of flavor to your salads: watercress, purslane, and parsley, with their mild, slightly grassy flavors, are high on the list of great greens. The authors show how "cooking greens" - like kale, collard, turnip, and mustard greens - in their baby state add intensity to a salad. To make your life even easier, each recipe suggests substitute greens.
This complete salad companion contains all the soon-to-be-cherished tips on salad making, including how to resuscitate wilted greens and how to roast garlic to perfection. Most of all, it tells you how to create salads that are simple to prepare, complex in presentation, and always special in taste.
