danny's secret salad dressing (ssshhhhh)

okay, so truthfully i don't really know if this salad dressing recipe is secret. for the sake of argument (and, because i am now posting it on my blog) let's say it's not really secret but only kind of secret.

this dressing is so simple, i can replicate it consistently regardless of how much pre-dinner vino i've had. yes, that simple. and delicious.

mince several cloves of fresh garlic
(an easy way to peel them is to chop off the gnarly
end and then smash the clove with the flat side of a broad knife).

in a small cream pitcher or coffee cup combine
garlic and approx 3 tbsp vegetable or canola oil.
squeeze juice of half a lemon into
mixture and season with salt and pepper to taste
(whenever tasting salad dressings, always taste dressing on lettuce).

stir vigorously while pouring over salad greens of your choosing. done.

this dressing is so light and flavorful, it's sure to get you to kick your ranch dressing habit. you'll never DREAM of drowning your salads in heavy dressings again!
