Lettuce salad with Homemade vinaigrette

To make homemade Balsamic vinaigrette you need
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tsp balsamic vinegar or any other vinegar
3 cloves garlic finely minced
1 tsp salt
Mix all the ingredients in a glass bottle and refrigerate for 24 hrs before using. This will stay upto 2-3 weeks.

Lettuce Salad

To make salad, I used 3 leaves of romaine lettuce and 4 leaves of iceberg lettuce. You may use any leaves of your choice. Wash the leaves under water. Use plenty of water and float the leaves. Then transfer the leaves to a bowl and let them drain. Its easier to drain till the last drop in a salad spinner. If you do not have one just let the leaves drain for 30 mins. Chop the leaves into tiny ribbons or strips. Pour the vinaigrette onto the leaves and gently mix them.
