Cherry Tomato Salad

Tomato Salad

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.
