Romaine Salad with Garlic Vinaigrette

Serves 4

This simple salad is basic but very delicious and always reminds me of my grandparents. During the day, my grandfather would go out into the garden to collect the vegetables for the meal. Back at the house, my grandmother would prepare this delicious salad dressing. Print Recipe
