Neighborhood: Hearty Salads and Plant-Based Recipes from Home and Abroad

Hearty and healthy salad recipes inspired by neighborhoods across the globe.

After living in Sydney, London, and now Brooklyn, and through her wanderings and travel, Hetty McKinnon has always been interested in the role food plays as a social anchor in neighborhoods across the globe. No matter where we live in the world, it is the daily rituals of food that bind us and strongly influence the way we live. In Neighborhood,McKinnon pays homage to her most memorable food experiences in Italy, Turkey, the Mediterranean, Provençal market towns, her native Australia, her mother’s ebullient Cantonese cooking, and in her new hometown of Brooklyn, while sharing boundless salad-making inspiration. Neighborhood celebrates the full potential of vegetables as a main meal, not just a side dish. This book will show home cooks how to build a delicious, healthy salad that is hearty enough as a main meal, using a star vegetable, whole grains, cereals, and accents of nuts and herbs, finished with a perfectly balanced sauce or dressing.
