This is a wonderful alternative to the vinaigrettes! It is a hearty, savory salad that is lightened with a mild lemon zest. It is a perfect accompaniment to steaks, chicken and either tuna or swordfish steaks. It takes a little time to prepare, but you get the time back since you don’t have to add salad extras. My sister, Kathy, CLL Recipe Tester, made this last night, served it to her 20 year-old son, and he loved it!

1 clove garlic, minced
5 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon dried chervil
½ teaspoon dried marjoram
¼ teaspoon dried mint
½ teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon dried tarragon
¼ teaspoon celery salt
½ teaspoon salt
2 heads of Boston lettuce, or other soft lettuces like red or green leaf lettuce.  (Boston lettuce is featured in the photo).

If you don’t have a mini or small food processor, it’s worth buying one! It saves a lot of time. I begin this dressing by adding one garlic clove to the food processor and then pulse it. I add the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, and mix again.  I add the olive oil last and give it one final mix.
