  1. Make the vinaigrette: combine the olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a blender; turn the machine on; a creamy emulsion will form within 30 seconds; taste and add more vinegar a teaspoon at a time until the balance tastes right to you.
  2. Add in the garlic clove and turn the machine on and off a few times until the garlic is minced within the dressing; taste again and adjust seasoning.
  3. Make the salad: combine the vegetables and the lettuce in a bowl; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper; toss.
  4. Drizzle with ½ cup vinaigrette; toss again, taste and adjust seasoning; serve immediately.
