  3. Have you tried it with mixed greens? My family isn’t a fan of arugula. 
    Any other suggestions

  4. Love, love LOVE this site! Everything I eat now comes from your site. I eat well, often and have lost 15 pounds!

  5. Made this for lunch and it was delicious! Because of my bp I cant use salt in anything so I made this without salt and even without it, it was delicious! Thanks Gina!

  6. Sorry if I wasn't clear, I drizzles it on top.

  7. do you spread the blended basil mixture on the tomatoes as well as part of the stack? Or is it drizzled on top? I'm confused what to do with it. Thanks!
