The best thing about salad is the nutrition you can pack into a meal. We all know we are supposed to eat our veggies, but sometimes it’s hard to just eat a pile of lettuce, even with some good toppings. Well, salad doesn’t always have to be lettuce. Try out this Tomato and Marinated Red Onion salad, packed with vitamins, minerals, and a harvest of flavors!
