Hail Lettuce!

The perfect garnish, the perfect salad!

In my book, Breaking Bread in L’Aquila, my proscuitto with melon is garnished with my “lettuce ruffles”, the perfect garnish and edible too!

Tonight in this 95 degree heat, I am preparing a simple lettuce salad with grape tomatoes, red onion, cucumber and Italian Tuna (Sicilian) packed in the glass jar.

Take advantage of the fresh, local vegetables that are in season. The perfect dinner with a glass of white wine !

ciao,

maria
