Tomato vinegarette... for one... or to share.. super super easy
really low cal & delish, eat the whole thing if you want ...no guilt
dice up 1-2 nice dark red tomato or a container of cherry/grape tomatos
crush em up a bit so you have a bowl full of juicy goodness
add a few tsp- as much as you like.. of the vinegar of your choosing... I like lots in mine & usually use like a 1/4 cup w 2 tomatos... and i like lots of different kinds of vinegar so I swap it around a lot... flavored rice vinegar rocks & lots of variations never boring
add some cracked pepper & whatever other spices you enjoy in this... very customizable...throw it over a bowl of leafy greens, toss in some shredded carrot, fruit if that's your thing... whatever u like in a salad... this tomato vinegarette is too good.
