- Prep Time
- 4 PeopleServings
- one head Lettuce
- 1/4 kilo Tomatoes Preferably cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup lemon juice preferably fresh squeezed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- fresh garlic clove optional
- 1 can chick peas optional
Wash/clean lettuce. To make lettuce kosher, soak for 5 minutes in large bowl with 1 tsp. salt stirred into water. (The salt will lift up any dirt, bugs, etc.)
Take individual leaves, one by one, and rinse them off and then check that there is only a fully clean lettuce leaf.
Shake off excess water from lettuce leaves, place lettuce leaves on paper towel to try, or at least in a strainer.
Wash and cut cherry tomatoes in fours.
In large bowl, place the following:
If desired: Minced fresh garlic - one clove.
LEAVE DRESSING AT BOTTOM OF BOWL UNTIL READY TO SERVE.
Chop lettuce, add to bowl.
Add cut tomatoes.
When ready to serve, mix from bottom up. Having dressing at the bottom and then mixing up allows for an excellent distribution of the dressing!
