Chinese Fried Lettuce

This is a very simple dish, as quick to make as it is tasty. You could use a prepackaged lettuce product to make this, but ordinary iceberg lettuce is far cheaper. Caution: Don’t overdo it on the oil or salt - less is best!
Chinese Fried Lettuce:
1 large, whole head of iceberg lettuce
2-to-3 tsp. oil
1 clove garlic, minced fine
Dash of salt
1 tbsp. sesame seeds
Wash lettuce, spinning or blotting dry. Cut into quarters. Heat oil in wok, frying lettuce 1 min. Add minced garlic, salt, and sesame seeds, combining well. Cook 1 min. longer. Serve at once.

While I’m thinking of Asian foods, my friend Pat recently gave me her terrific recipe for Bok Choy Salad. I’ll share it with you, tomorrow.
