G-G’s Salad
For every four people:
1 clove garlic
1 rounded teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon granulated sugar
1 lemon, cut in half
Leaf oregano, enough to cover lemon juice
1 medium head romaine lettuce
1 small bunch green onions, chopped
Extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil

Squeeze the garlic with a garlic press into the bottom of a wooden bowl, and cover it with the salt and sugar. Squeeze the juice from the lemon into the bowl. Cover with the oregano. Let stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Tear (do not cut) the lettuce into bite-size pieces, and drop them on top of the ingredients in the bowl. Sprinkle the green onions over the lettuce. Drizzle the olive oil over the lettuce, starting in the center of the bowl and working outward in circles. Toss the ingredients from the bottom up. Serve with your favorite garlic bread.
