Directions

  1. In a mortar and pestle, crush the garlic. Add the pepper and salt and continue mashing until mixture becomes a thick paste. Transfer to a jar along with the lemon juice and canola oil. Shake well.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the lettuce, tomatoes and onion. Just before serving, add the cheese and just enough dressing to coat. (There will be extra dressing, but it keeps well.) Toss well.

I followed the recipe to the letter, and it tasted like...oil and some lemon juice. I took a taste and hated it. I threw it out. I was very disappointed, but I guess when you look at the fact that it's 2 &1/2 cups lemon juice and 1 cup canola oil, you can understand why it just tastes like oil.

This was a really easy recipe to follow. I cannot wait to use it this summer with fresh tomatoes from my garden!
