With a very sharp knife, shave a clove of garlic into the finest slices you can manage.
Put them in the bowl.
Add good balsamic vinegar.
Add about 3 times as much excellent olive oil.
Add a large pinch of salt.
Dice a tomato and add it to the bowl.
Give it a little mix a and let it all macerate for a few minutes.
Add your salad greens. I put in a few fresh herbs from the garden: taragon, basil, thyme. Optional.
Eat with a dash of great enjoyment and a glass of Chianti.
