Salads, freshness from the earth is the second book in the series A Taste of the Mediterranean. Ranging from the most traditional to the most sophisticated, it gives you the chance to taste basic salads with lettuce, tomato, onion and olives as well as combinations of all kinds including vegetables, pasta, potatoes and fish with crisp or dried ingredients or even - why not? - a lime foam or a Parmesan biscuit. A book which invites you to try out bold mixtures, and above all to change things round so that everybody can add their own personal touch.
