Lettuce Salad: A Different Portuguese Seasoning
Today´s post is about a Portuguese seasoning for salads I learned from my mother-in-law. I think this lettuce salad goes well with almost any dish. I like to serve it with roasted meat, grilled fish, codfish dishes, some pasta specialities, omelets and "Tortilhas", the Spanish omlet.
I mix all the ingredients in a salad bowl in the following order: Lettuce, onion, fresh corienter and mint leaves (chopped toguether), salt, olive oil, vinegar and water. Lettuce salads with this type of vinagrette sauce should be served right after being prepared.
~ Thin slices of onion
~ Fresh corienter
~ Fresh garden mint leaves
~ Olive oil
~ 1 tsp water
