The simple Cuban salad that has appeared on kitchen tables the world over.
INGREDIENTS:2 ripe red tomatoes
Dressing:4 cloves garlic, mashed
Cut the tomatoes in wedges, cut the onion in thin slices. Break up the lettuce by hand. Thin slice the radishes,
Toss all ingredients together and place in the refrigerator to chill.
Use a mortar and pestle to mash the garlic with the salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, add the olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice to the crushed garlic. Whisk together thoroughly.
You can also use a blender to emulsify the oil and liquids.
Just before serving: Gradually add the dressing, a little at a time, while you toss the salad with a couple of large salad forks.
Add just enough dressing to cover the salad -- more or less to your own taste.
