This is the way Italians enjoy their salad: Tossing the greens in good quality, fruity extra virgin olive oil, some lemon juice, and just salt to season, right at the table.  You may replace the lemon with some balsamico or wine vinegar for a more acidic taste, but take note that nothing to sweeten the dressing is ever added. This is where the quality of the virgin olive oil is of utmost importance.  Read about this recipe's author, here:  Margarita Fores
