Each recipe is lovingly hand-lettered and illustrated with Mollie's distinctive pen-and-ink drawings, making this timeless collection the perfect kitchen countertop companion. A collection of 50 salad recipes from the best-selling author of THE MOOSEWOOD COOKBOOK, in a sturdy, compact easel format for easy reference while cooking. Katzen's books have sold more than six million copies. MOOSEWOOD was inducted into the James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame for its "significant and enduring impact on the way we cook and understand food."
