  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3 red onions, cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 tomatoes, cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons drained caper
  • 1 large or 2 small bunches arugula, stemmed
  • 1 head radicchio

1. In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onions and cook, stirring, for about 10 minutes, until translucent. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

2. Put the chopped tomatoes in a large bowl. Add the vinegar and capers and toss. Add the cooked garlic and onions and toss again.

3. To serve, toss the arugula and radicchio together and arrange on individual salad plates. Top the lettuces with the tomato mixture.
