italian salad

The salad looks kind of bland and dressing-less in the pictures, but it's covered in a delightful mixture of seasonings and oil.

This is one of those test and taste recipes. There are no specific measurements.


2 heads of romaine lettuce
2-4 cloves of garlic, minced
olive oil
rice vinegar
basil leaves
grated parmesan cheese


  1. Mince fresh garlic and spread on the bottom and sides of your bowl (1-2 depending on the size of the bowl/salad)
  2. Wash and chop romaine lettuce, put in bowl
  3. Sprinkle olive oil over entire salad
  4. Sprinkle rice vinegar over entire salad
  5. Sprinkle salt
  6. Sprinkle Basil leaves (you can probably use dried if you want)
  7. Mince at least 1 clove of fresh garlic on top of lettuce
  8. Toss salad, taste. Add more oil, vinegar, salt, basil or garlic as needed
  9. Right before serving, add grated parmesan cheese on top
Add chicken to make a complete meal.
