Notes

Serving size about one cup
Substitutes:
  • Tomatoes: Use any small cherry tomatoes, or your next option will be vine-ripe tomatoes
  • Onions: Red onion works best, but you can also use white sweet onions
  • Oil: Avocado or olive oil. Grapeseed oil is also ok
  • Vinegar: We love balsamic, but you can also use red wine vinegar.
  • Seasoning: if you don't have any Italian seasoning handy, use these other herbs to make some: dried parsley, basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary.
Storage:
Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Serve cold. We do not recommend freezing.
