This seemingly simple salad is a must for everyone's collection. It’s made from traditional salad ingredients, but some of the cherry tomatoes are blended into the homemade dressing for a flavorful twist. Plus, it is ready in just 10 minutes, making it an ideal side dish for harried weeknight dinners. You can dress it up, if you like, by adding in toasted walnuts for crunch, dried cranberries for sweetness, cannellini beans for heft, and crumbled feta or goat cheese for richness. Or, you can top it with grilled chicken, sautéed shrimp, or roasted fish to make it the main dish.
