I have a question about the recipe "Roasted Onion Salad with Arugula and Walnut Salsa" from Marian Bull. Is the garlic meant to be chopped? If so, how small?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Since the directions do no specify any method I would chop small, then smear with the flat of your chefs knife on a bed (pinch) of salt and mix in. Unless of course you love to bite into chunks of raw garlic, then chop accordingly.

According to another adapted version of this Ottolenghi recipe, you process the all of the salsa ingredients in a food processor until the garlic is finely chopped. I would say it's up to your discretion, finely chop the garlic and mix with the rest of the ingredients or process it in a food processor.

agree with Dawne, it's your choice. But/and I find that chopping garlic finely on a board with salt gives a lovely paste and great dispersal of flavor in a sauce.
You don't happen to have a link to that recipe, do you? Thanks for the help.
