Lemon and Garlic Dressing for Salads or Vegetables (p. 262)

I was invited to a friends house for dinner last night and was scouring for the house for things to bring. I had a loaf of stecca with olives already prepared, but I wanted to throw together a little something else as well.

I knew the menu we were having included salad, so I found the salad dressing section and made the one that we had all the ingredients to. It's very simple to make -- crush a half a clove of garlic and mix it with salt until you have a paste, and then add lemon juice, olive oil, and pepper. Ta da! All done.

It's a good quick recipe but also very salty. My hosts, David and Wendy, said it tastes just like the dressing they get on their salads at a Mediterranean restaurant they like to go to, so at least it's legit. It's also really tasty for dipping bread into.

I didn't take a picture because a tupperware full of a yellow dressing would have been boring.
