When it comes to food, we’re all about good-for-you ingredients…but it’s got to be delicious, too. And if it looks gorgeous, all the better. Which is where one of our new favorite culinary finds Saladish, from celebrated chef Ilene Rosen, comes in. Billed a “crunchier, grainier, herbier, heartier, tastier way with vegetables”, it’s the salad(ish) cookbook of our dreams. And filled with unfussy one-bowl recipes featuring inspired ingredients, it’s one we’ll be pulling from all summer long. A standout: this one for Gem Lettuces, Avocado and Tomatillo with Buttermilk Dressing. Spoiler alert…the dressing totally steals the show.
