Publishers Text

Salsas, dips, dressings and marinades are the perfect antidote to plain food with their tangy, creamy, or fruity concoctions. What's more, they are all quick and easy to prepare making them ideal for easy no-fuss entertaining. Simply use fresh, raw ingredients, and mix them together in a blender or processor. Few ingredients need to be cooked first, and the combinations of fruits and vegetables, spices, herbs and oils means you can tailor the recipe to fit the meal and the occasion.

A summer barbecue grill would be incomplete without the addition of salsas and dips. Creamy and mellow, or sizzlingly hot, salsa and dips are the ultimate in fast food. Choose mixed melon salsa for a cooling contrast to a hot and spicy meat dish, or fresh and fruity orange and chive salsa to add a refreshing tang to plainly cooked food. All the well known dips are also included, from guacamole to hummus and tzatziki.

Marinades and dressings, like salsas and dips, can be made in advance and kept in the refridgerator until they are needed. Their aromatic flavourings add depth and acidity to food. Try ginger and lime marinade with shrimp or aromatic herb marinade for salmon. And when the summer season has passed, preserve the best fruits, herbs and spices with tempting relishes and chutneys that transform a chunk of cheese or wedge of bread and butter into a delicious feast. Try caramelized toffee onion relish with its sweet flavour, or for a seasonal variation, make Christmas chutney.

In total the book contains 75 delicious salsas and dressings shown in over 400 colour photographs. Preparation of every dish is shown step-by-step photography, with a glorious picture of every finished recipe. So, whether you're entertaining family or friends or just making a healthy snack for two, Salsas, Dips and Dressings will provide all the inspiration you need and will deliver up the perfect dish every time.
