*My grandmother taught me to do everything by taste and sight. But I've tried to figure out her recipe by tasting. You don't have to mix the ingredients in a blender; you can just pour everything together.

Grandma Bueno was a purist when it came to this salad . . . no other vegetables, just the lettuce.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My grandmother was a fabulous cook who never measured anything. That's what makes this a fun recipe. One night I fixed this for the "Up With Moms" girls that I used to cook with on Wednesday nights at church. Well, it became a staple because they wanted it EVERY TIME we cooked. We all went home smelling of garlic, but perfectly content.
