Tomatoes are a good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. And these two components help the body to get rid of harmful free radicals in our blood. However, to absorb Vitamin C into the system, the tomatoes need to be eaten raw, so bring on the salads.
Shredded lettuce, 6 cups
Medium tomatoes, cut into slices, 6 cups
Oil and vinegar salad dressing, 1/4 cup
Snipped chives, 1 teaspoon
Dried thyme, 1/4 teaspoon
In a salad bowl, place the tomatoes and lettuce. Now stir thyme, chives and salad dressing and blend well. Sprinkle the dressing over the salad and keep tossing gently.
