“Persimmons and a pomegranate vinaigrette give this salad festive color and flavor. I especially love the crunch from the pomegranate seeds and pumpkin seeds,” says Danielle Walker, author of Against All Grain Celebrations.
Walker is the author of the New York Times best-selling cookbook series Against All Grain, and the voice behind one of the most popular grain-free blogs on the internet, againstallgrain.com. After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and suffering for many years, Walker healed herself through dietary changes, and she is a testament to how food can nourish and heal our bodies. Walker’s new book, Against All Grain Celebrations, focuses on remaking classic dishes in healthy, flavorful, easy-to-prepare ways that will satisfy everyone at your table. These recipes will help you to easily host guests with various food allergies, as well as a crowd of regular grain-eaters.
