Salad Samurai ($13) by Terry Hope Romero is like a salad dating service. If you think you don't like salad, it's just because you haven't met the right one! Browse through the pages, and you're sure to find at least a few that look enticing. These are not your soggy, sad, dinner salads that you eat to make yourself feel better about those French fries. These are hearty, interesting, colorful meals full of flavor and texture. So far we've made the summery and spicy Backyard Buffalo Caesar Salad, the filling Miso Edamame Succotash that bursts with umami flavor in every bite, and our hands-down favorite, the Smokehouse Chickpeas and Greens salad, with its pan-fried BBQ flavor chickpeas and smoked paprika vinaigrette. They've all been much more satisfying than any eHarmony date we've ever been on.
