Salads are perfect for big-flavour meals, but pre-made ones are often covered with sugary dressings and full of preservatives for extended shelf life, so Kathryn Bruton has ramped up the health-factor with her range of skinny salads to suit everyone, whether they want something warming and comforting, refreshing and revitalising or all-out wow. Chapters cover Gloriously Green, Comfort, Simple, Classics, Show-Off and Fruit Salads, and include gluten and dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan recipes. Plus there's a section with extra-good-for-you dressings, condiments and pickles. From warming Kofta Salad, a 'Wind me Down' Winter's Evening Salad and tasty Spiced Roasted Plum Salad to a twist on the classic, Caesar Salad with Purple Kale, Kathryn minimises the use of sugary, heavy dressings and bland leaves and brings fresh, nutrient packed ingredients. Each salad is less than 300 calories per portion, but still jam-packed with flavour.
