from my Grandma Beth Benz
1 clove garlic
Mash 1 clove of garlic to nothingness in a wooden bowl.
To make this chore easier, add salt and pepper &
continue to mash.
Once garlic is mashed add 3 salad spoons of olive oil
to the bowl. Then add 1 salad spoon of wine vinegar to
oil and mix well.
Place salad fork & spoon into the bowl over teh top of the dressing.
They will hold the salad greens up out of the dressing so all of the greens
will remain crisp.
Break lettuce into the bowl. Never cut with a knife, since metal tends to
darken the greens. Once the greens are in the bowl, cover with a damp towel and set in a cool place
until ready to toss and serve. Never refrigerate because the oil will coagulate and ruin the salad.
