Egg and Tomato Salad

I often need to prepare a salad just for myself. And when I want a change from ordinary greens, this is the recipe I reach for.—Joan Schroeder, Mesquite, Nevada

    Next time I make this I would add a little more sugar to the dressing as it was a little sour for my family's tastes. We do love the combination of lettuce tomato and egg, though, and it makes a nice light dinner with some breadsticks on a hot summer night.
