Ingredients

    Dressing:
    1 - Garlic, peeled and minced
    2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
    2 tbsp. Seasoned Rice Vinegar (Star brand with no corn syrup)
    1-2 tbsp. Grated Parmesan Cheese

    Veggies:
    1 - Carrot, large - peeled and sliced thinly
    1 - Cucumber - peeled and sliced
    1 - Tomato - sliced or several cherry tomatoes
    1 - Cauliflower pieces - cut small

    Lettuce:
    1/4 head red leaf lettuce
    1/4 head green leaf lettuce

    However, any type of lettuce would do (spinach, too). I usually toss in 3 large handfuls for 4-6 people.

Directions

Prepare Dressing: Peel and mince garlic into a wooden bowl (preferably non-varnished natural wood). Smash the garlic along the bottom of the bowl with a small spoon. Pour remainder of dressing ingredients into bowl and mix well with the garlicky spoon.

Marinate Veggies and Prep Lettuce: Peel and slice carrots and cucumbers and toss them into the dressing with tomato and cauliflower pieces to let them marinate. Place the lettuce on top of marinating veggies and make your dinner.

Serve Salad: Toss to coat (scraping the bottom of the bowl to get all the garlic flavor) the lettuce with the veggies just before serving.

Leftovers are yummy the next day.

Serving Size: Makes dressing for large salad (serving 4-6)

Number of Servings: 4
