In this salad, the herbs are actually part of the salad. If you are stuck and have to use dried herbs, reduce to one teaspoon of each and add to the dressing.
If you’re like me, you rarely have tomato juice in the house, right?
You can substitute V8, or use watered down ketchup. The spicy V8 gives it a kick!
