Made with romaine lettuce, red grape tomatoes, red onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh parsley, jarred pesto, sugar, minced garlic clove, salt & pepper, and Parmesan cheese.
So I decided to make myself a salad. I liked this salad a lot—and it was actually the homemade tomato dressing that won me over.
I loved how I was able to throw all the ingredients into a plastic zipper bag, let everything marinate, and then throw it all on top of lettuce leaves as the dressing. Too simple. And how delicious it was.
The recipe called for a mix of red and yellow grape tomatoes, but I could only find red—so I doubled up on the red ones. Needless to say, it would have been a little more colorful if I had found the yellow tomatoes, too.
I added twice as much pesto because I just loved the flavor of the pesto. Then, of course, I topped my salad with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese of which the recipe does not call for at all.
I will definitely be making this scrumptious salad again soon.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, make yourself a fabulously healthy tomato salad with the goodness of a homemade marinated dressing.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Homemade salad dressings are hands-down so much better than the store-bought stuff.
