Salad made using tomatoes and green onions is very fulfilling side dish salad. Taste and fragrance are great, not to mention abundance of vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients. This is very low calorie salad, just be careful with dressings and oil ...

I like simple recipes - this is one of them.

Take two green onions and two medium sized tomatoes and wash them with plenty of water.

Cut tomatoes in half and using sharp knife, slice tomatoes into suitable pot. Clean green onions and chop them into smaller pieces.

Put chopped onions into pot with tomatoes, add some salt, just a little bit of pepper, some vinegar.

Adding oil: If you add single tablespoon of oil (ordinary vegetable oil, olive oil, etc), you will add around 15g of oil - that is around 135 kcal. But, without oil, any salad have 'dry' taste. Feel free to add half of tablespoon of oil and mix everything.

Salad is done. If that was complicated, then ... :o)

That is around 155 kcal - mostly from complex carbs (tomatoes) and oil. Fiber content is good - 5g. I didn't add any kind of salad dressing - vinegar in combination with some pepper and green onions is more than enough for strong, but tasty aroma.

Note on green onions: some people use only 'white' part for salads, while they throw away 'green' part - don't do this. Green part is much richer in various vitamins and other, very beneficial, micronutrients.

I use this salad as side dish with grilled meat - chicken breast, turkey breast, veal schnitzels etc.
