Looking for an interesting salad? Forget Los Abrigos! The basic salad, served in every restaurant, is lettuce (usually Iceberg), beef tomatoes (these are exceptionally good usually, local grown for a change) and onion. They might add a splattering of sweet corn, or tinned asparagus, but otherwise nada. Just the oil and vinegar on the table to dress it yourself. Sometimes, how I long for a ranch dressing or blue cheese maybe, or some raspberry vinegar! A variety of lettuce would be nice too. Iceberg is practical I guess, healthy even, but, letís face it, a bit on the tasteless side!
