  2. In a food processor, combine the flour, salt, and butter in the processor and process until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, about 10 seconds.

  9. Form into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  14. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  26. For Simple Salad:.
  27. Beat the vinegar in a bowl with the sugar, garlic, salt and pepper until sugar and salt dissolves.
  28. Then beat in the oil by droplets, whisking constantly. (Or place all the ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake to combine.)
