The Modern Salad

By Elizabeth Howes

Create your own healthy, hearty salads inspired by the incredible Burmese tea leaf salad


The Burmese tea leaf salad is one of the all-time iconic dishes of Asian cuisine. Beautifully presented with an array of delicious and healthy items, it makes for a sublime feast of flavors that are stirred together table top. Now, professional chef Elizabeth Howes takes inspiration from this super-popular Southeast Asian dish to create innovative salads perfectly suited for America’s farm-to-table ingredients. She begins with a fascinating look at Burmese culture and cuisine before jumping into the dozens of easy-to-follow recipes.


Readers are guided step by step through the process of making a tea leaf salad from scratch but are also shown how to plate more modern serve-and-stir salads, such as Lemongrass Chicken Salad, Saffron-Ginger Shrimp Salad, and America’s own Cobb Salad. With stunning full-color photos, high-quality interior stock, and decorative end papers, this paper-over-board hardcover makes the perfect gift for any salad lover.
