“This recipe is from The New York Times Cook Book by Craig Claiborne, copyright 1961. I’ve made this many times. According to Mr. Claiborne “This dish from the Riviera may be eaten hot or cold. Cold, it may serve as an appetizer. Add garlic according to conscience and social engagements.” Two cloves seems to be just right!”
