Spain: Homemade salad and olives

In Spain we usually have salad as a side order. Salad is not a starter but something you share and eat while you enjoy your main plate. This is a homemade lettuce, mozzarella, ruccola, raisins, and tomato salad dressed with virgin olive oil, Maldon salt, cumin and balsamic vinegar.

Ensalada de lechuga, oruga (r�cola), tomate, pasas, mozzarella y ali�o de aceite de oliva virgen, vinagre bals�mico, sal Maldon y comino.
