Pictorial Detailed Instructions
As easy as a,b,c right? Remember to only pour your salad dressing just before serving. Doing this earlier will put your salad in danger of wilting as well as cause the juice from the tomatoes to run free and that won’t look too appetising! You can have this as a side dish or as an appetiser, light lunch or supper. You could also carry it to the office.
