    1      Cup           Spanish olive oil
                         CHILE STRIPS
    1                    egg

 (Directions for chile strips) Whisk together the egg and water in a medium
 bowl. Coat the chile strips in the egg mixture, then set aside. Place the
 cornmeal in a bowl next to the chile strips. Heat the oil in a large heavy
 skillet until hot. Coat half the chile strips with cornmeal and add to the
 oil. Fry over medium heat until golden, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper
 towels. Fry the other half of the strips and drain. Salt to taste.
 (Directions for salad) Wash and pat dry lettuce leaves, then tear into
 pieces. Place on a platter and arrange the tomatoes on top and around the
 edges. To make the dressing: Place the cheese, oregano, chives, lime juice
 and olive oil in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Drizzle
 the dressing over the greens and tomatoes. Top with chile strips.
