Hi. I'm Devra Gartenstein with Quirky Gourmet. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a tossed tomato salad. And basically, this is going to be a tossed salad with some tomato on top, and what I'm going to do is going to toss the salad greens with the dressing separately from the tomato, because that way you can have the tomato attractively on top instead of mixed in where you can't really see it. So it's just a much nicer presentation than mixing it all up together. So here are some lovely local salad greens, mixed greens. There's some spinach in here, there's some red leaf lettuce, some oak leaf lettuce, radicchio. So I'm going to dress this simply with just olive oil and balsamic vinegar and just a little bit of salt and a little bit of pepper. And I'm going to toss it just with a couple of forks, just to kind of get everything coated. Going to chop the tomato. I'm using a Roma tomato, which is a nice sturdy tomato. You can use almost any kind of tomato with this. I'm using a serrated knife, which if you're anything like me and you don't sharpen your knives nearly often enough, a serrated knife is really forgiving when you cut tomatoes, because it will grip the surface more, because the surface of a tomato can be kind of slippery. So now I'm going to put the chopped tomato in a separate bowl and I'm going to toss it with basically the same dressing that I used for the greens, so some balsamic vinegar, some olive oil, tiny bit of salt, and some black pepper. So I'm going to toss this so it's coated with the dressing, and then I'm just going to lay it attractively on top of the greens. So everything is nice and flavorful and nicely presented. Here is a tossed tomato salad.
