"The words salad for cookbook might fill you with dread, but this one is unique. A creative project with beautiful illustrations, recipes are interspersed with interviews with artists and activists. A great coffee table book as well as a cookbook." -- BBC Good Food Magazine
"Sherman's recipes are the result of collaborations with artists, musicians, writers or someone in the creative field, using salad in a broad sense of the term. Quirky chapter titles include Salad in Sweatpants: Casual Meals for People Who Already Love You, and Salad on the Rocks: Cocktails, Soups, Desserts and Other Abuses of the Format. Salad for President is a visionary, inspirational and, most of all, a fun book." -- Sunday Times Ireland
"Based on the popular blog by the same name, this aesthetically pleasing collection of over 75 recipes, interviews and contributions from artists and other creative professionals will revolutionise your approach to salad making, inspiring you to consider salads from a fresh angle." -- Easy Food
