Twelve Months of Monastery Salads
200 Divine Recipes for All SeasonsBook - 2004
People now savour and enjoy salads all year round. Some of the reasons salads are so popular are that they are easy to put together, there are endless variations to please every taste and palate, and they seem to always provide a wonderful contrast of flavours, textures, colour, and nuances. Monastic cooking relies a great deal on the seasonal harvest of our gardens, farms and orchards. Nothing is so deeply appreciated at the monastic table as a well-arranged, well-balanced salad, the end result of our own cultivation and the thrifty creativity of the monastic kitchen. The recipes here exalt the values of health, nutrition and the refinement of taste.
