  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 2
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • one vine-ripened tomato, sliced into large chunks
  • 1 tbsp.balsamic vinegar (the best you can find!)
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (the best..)
  • salt and pepper
  • two pinches of Italian seasoning (herbs, no salt)
  • approx 2 c. romaine lettuce (or mixed greens, incl spinach)
  • one green onion, chopped
  • one large white mushroom, sliced, optional

Directions

  • Gently combine chopped tom's with s&p, seasonings, vinegar and oil.
  • Set aside
  • Slice lettuce in thin strips and pile high on a large serving plate
  • Top with tom's placed in a line over top of the greens, beginning and ending on the plate
  • Centre with the green onion and scatter with mushrm's, if using
  • Add more dressing, if desired.

Notes

(Hint--if having focaccia, the left-over dressing makes a great dipping sauce!)

I usually serve this as a first course all by itself; it is a beauty to look at and wonderful to savour.

Enjoy
