3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

1 head iceberg lettuce, cut into chunks


  1. Halve the tomatoes and add them to a large zipper bag with the sliced red onion. Add the olive oil, balsamic, parsley, pesto, sugar, garlic and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Seal the bag, getting all the air out. Place into the fridge until ready for dinner.
