Anyone got a good

Salad recipe book to recommend? thankyou

No idea on a book but could just collate all the recipes people give or link to in here. This one from Hugh F-W has been a staple for us for over ten years, it’s absolutely banging.

Beef, grapefruit, mint and coriander salad

For the marinade
3 tbsp light soy sauce
1½ tbsp runny honey
1 tbsp Thai fish sauce (nam pla)
1 small red chilli, finely sliced (seeds left in if you like it hot)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 small thumb fresh ginger, peeled and grated
450g steak, cut into 1.5cm thin strips

For the dressing
Juice of 1 lime
1 grapefruit, peel and pith cut away, cut into segments, juice squeezed from the skin and reserved
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp fish sauce
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
½ tsp honey
1cm ginger, peeled and grated
1 tsp groundnut oil
A couple of handfuls fresh rocket
1 small red onion, peeled, halved and sliced into thin rounds
1 small handful coriander, leaves picked and roughly torn
1 small handful fresh mint, leaves picked and roughly torn
1 small handful toasted cashews

Whisk together the soy sauce, honey, fish sauce, chilli, garlic and ginger. Add the beef, cover and leave to marinade for an hour or two. Just before you’re ready to cook, make the dressing. Whisk together the lime and grapefruit juices, sesame oil, fish sauce, garlic, honey and ginger.

Drain the beef from the marinade, heat the groundnut oil in a frying pan or wok until just smoking and stir-fry the beef for a couple of minutes. Divide the rocket between four plates. Spoon the beef over the top with the red onion, coriander, mint, grapefruit and cashews. Trickle the dressing over the top and serve immediately.
