Michael van Straten is a leading expert in the field of complementary medicine and believes that salad provides a myriad of health benefits and is far too delicious to be relegated to summer-only status. In Super Salads he recommends over 60 super-scrumptious salads - from Warm leek and pea with mustard to Figs, lamb's lettuce, tarragon, and lemon - to tempt you all year round. An A-Z chart listing the curative powers of salads for a range of ailments is also included.
