Americans may love salad, but often select their salad dressings from a wide assortment of bottles on the supermarket shelf containing an array of creamy, tangy, or vinaigrette-type dressings in every color and flavor imaginable. In the Mediterranean, the dressing of a salad is a much simpler matter: a little lemon juice or vinegar, some salt and pepper, and a good dose of extra virgin olive oil. Try mixing up this olive oil vinaigrette at home and you may find it is not only more economical but more delicious and fresh-tasting than bottled dressings. It’s wonderful on fresh greens as well as drf
In a small bowl, combine the vinegar or lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil until well blended. Serve immediately over fresh greens.
