When I lived in Elko, Nevada, I dined at the local Basque houses quite regularly. The meals are served "family style" and every meal begins with soda bread, cabbage soup, and a green salad. I got this recipe from a former co-worker who use to work at one of the Basque houses, so it's a pretty authentic recipe. It is simple, but has a lot of flavor, especially if you like garlic! This salad is best served with chicken or steak.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together.
  2. Chill until ready to serve.
  3. Lightly drizzle the dressing over fresh salad greens and toss until evenly coated.
  4. It is a very strong and flavorful dressing, so you may want to play around with the amount of dressing you add to suit your personal taste.
  5. Caution: Do not mix the salad dressing with the salad greens until you are ready to eat or the greens will wilt.

Great, a true replication of the original. Directions say fine chopped eggs but the pic show sliced? If memory serves this is always served with fine chopped hard boiled eggs? Not a big wow either way.

This is for garlic lovers! I used this as a dressing the first meal and then as a veggie dip the next day. This was very good, thanks.
