In 1974, Kathryn Hannaford of Stockton, California published Cosmic Cookery, a book of protein-balanced recipes that called for no eggs, fish, fowl, or meat. The book was written, she said, not only "for beginners in natural foods cooking, who know little about the endless combinations of nature's delights and the many ways to prepare them," but also "for the experienced vegetarian who's looking for new ideas and inspiration."

Well, Cosmic Cookery — now in its third printing — does indeed provide both information and inspiration aplenty in tons of great salad recipes, and as proof of that, we offer you Kathryn's California salad recipes and salad dressing recipes.
