This is a great recipe if you need a new fun salad or want something yummy to bring over to a friend’s home. I dress this with a simple olive oil/balsamic vinegar mix. For some added crunch sprinkle some almonds on top, put the salad in a pretty bowl, and you have a beautiful and tasty dish! Enjoy!

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt in small bowl, put aside.
  2. Pour salad mix, tomatoes and almonds in a large bowl.
  3. When ready to serve, pour dressing over salad and mix well.
  4. Yep, that’s it!
