Community is all about sharing good food, giving you endless ideas on delicious salads to serve up for your family, friends and neighbours. These simple, sustainable and healthy recipes feature fresh, seasonal produce and inject colour, life and flair into that most modest of everyday meals: the salad. Rather than being simply sides,Community's salads are meals in their own right, giving vegetables, legumes, herbs and nuts their moment to shine.

The recipes in Community are inspired by author Hetty McKinnon's community kitchen, Arthur Street Kitchen, where Hetty single-handedly makes and delivers homemade salads to residents in Surry Hills, Sydney, on Thursday and Friday every week. All by bike! Hetty's salads use only the freshest produce, sourced locally wherever possible. Inspired first and foremost by the seasons, Hetty also takes cues from what she sees, smells and experiences from the world around her. At the heart of every dish is a core vegetable, around which a thoughtful culinary story is built, resulting in honest, inventive and hearty salads that deliver big, punchy flavours.

What a winner!


This is a fantastic all-salad recipe book. I have made about 10 of them so far, and every single one has been a winner. I highly recommend it - both for yourself, and to gift to a friend or two as I have done.

Delicious easy to make salads


Seriously underwhelmed


I bought this book looking for some adventurous salads to take to dinner parties. I wanted recipies that used tasty fresh ingredients in a delightful and visually apealing way. What I got was a collection of incipit looking pictures of very underwhelming salads.

Love this book!!


Beautiful healthy recipes that have become staples in our house




All the recipes I've tried are excellent, and although some of the ingredients aren't really easy to find in the supermarket, there are plenty of substitutions suggested so you can make it without too much searching. I love that it is full of interesting, filling recipes, that just happen to be vegetarian. You wouldn't notice because the recipes are so good.
