Publishers Text

From the introduction to Twelve Months of Monastery Salads:

People now savor 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 flavors, textures, color, 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 refinement of taste. A salad, carefully prepared, is always an occasion for celebration. Bon Apetit!
