80--- Bloody Mary Tomato Salad

This is just the ticket to enjoying your Memorial Day in a healthful way.  So fresh and flavorful-- and a tad bit spicy, right at the end.  Who doesn't love a Bloody Mary?

Bloody Mary Tomato Salad
Serves 4-5

2 1/2-3 pints grape tomatoes, halved
2 stalks celery, sliced into thin "crunchy rainbows" (phrase courtesy of my niece and nephew)
1/4 cup white onion, coarsely chopped
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Combine grape tomatoes, celery and onion into a medium bowl.  In a smaller bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.  Pour dressing over salad and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, overnight is preferred.

Serve with your favorite grilled item!
