1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion, separated into rings

2 shallots, sliced thin

6 tablespoons light or reduced fat Italian-style salad dressing (your choice)

1/3 cup minced mixed fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, and tarragon

  • Core tomatoes and cut them into 1/2-inch thick slices. Arrange tomato slices in a deep serving dish (a 9x11-inch dish works well), and scatter onion and shallots over them.
  • Drizzle the bottled salad dressing evenly over the salad. Cover the dish and chill for 20-30 minutes.
  • Sprinkle herb mixture over the top and serve.
