Taco Salad. Creamy Chicken… Caesar… and Pasta Salads. Cobb Salad. Topped with cheese, nuts, tortilla chips, tangy-zippy dressings, and dare we mention… bacon? These salads aren’t just a lean woman’s dreams. Now everyone can enjoy their favorites again-- with Cooking Light Big Book of Salads.
Look forward to salad for dinner--really!
Most salads tend to fall into one of two camps: the bland bowl of pale, naked greens (the salad people talk themselves into eating because it’s “good for them”), or the loadedwith- goodies jumbo restaurant salad (the kind that’s got more calories than a slice of cheesy lasagna).

notes everyone loves.

Tips and techniques provide everything
needed to make amazing salads.
