Frisée and Herb Salade au Chapone

This recipe is great for those who like garlic but don’t want too much of it. Simply infuse oil with garlic and use a bit on toasted bread (the chapon), which is tossed with the salad and then eaten at the end of the meal.

Several types of dried seaweed are available in natural-foods markets—arame and dulse (sometimes called “sea vegetables”) are two of the most common. Snipped pieces of nori (the seaweed used for sushi rolls) would work too.
