Summer Salad with Work of Art Vinaigrette
The simple vinaigrette of 4 ingredients magically dresses a big bowl of salad greens. Fresh lemon heightens the flavor.
Serves 8
8 cups salad greens
Fresh herbs, nasturtium blossoms, or whatever you like in your salad
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon coarse kosher or sea salt
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
Place the salad greens and accompaniments in a large salad bowl.
In a small bowl using a wooden spoon or in a mortar and pestle, mash the garlic with the salt until it makes a fine paste. Stir in the lemon juice, then the olive oil. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to blend. Serve right away.
