A salad can be ready in 5 minutes, like this fresh tomato salad with spring onions and Italian herbs.
In a salad bowl, whisk the Italian seasoning with the olive oil and vinegar into a creamy dressing. Cut the cocktail tomatoes into quarters and mix with the spicy salad dressing. Thinly slice the spring onions, and add them together with the rocket (rucola) and the spicy tomatoes just before serving.
Tips from the author
