• Who wrote it: Julia Mirabella
• Who published it: Ulysses Press
• Number of recipes: 50
• Other highlights: This cookbook is all about feeding you idea after idea, and then showing you just how to execute each one. The recipes focus on 5 or 6 main ingredients (various combinations of fruits and veggies, greens, grains, beans, nuts, cheese, and vinaigrettes), and then show you how to layer them into jars to both keep everything fresh and to make them easy to grab on the way out the door. Plus, salads layered in jars just look pretty! Who wouldn't want to eat these beautiful salads?!
Besides lunch salads, this book also includes large selection of smoothies, make-ahead breakfasts, heat-and-serve dinners, and easy picnic appetizers. All packed in convenient, spill-proof canning jars, of course!
