Top Review by Dr. Jenny

I loved this salad! I had fresh garden greens, herbs, and tomatoes in need of using and this recipe perfectly fit the bill. My tomatoes were small heirloom and I thought the orange color that one of them lent looked very pretty in the salad. I "crushed" my tomatoes in the mini food processor, having never used fresh crushed tomatoes before. I mixed my greens with basil, oregano and chives. I used Israeli couscous. I think the red onions could be optional. I ate them with my first serving, but forgot them in my second serving and didn't notice. I already put this in my keeper file and will be making again. Thanks!
