1
tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/4
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8

1/4
teaspoon dried herb (basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, tarragon, or thyme)

cups torn romaine or mixed salad greens
1/2

Seal and shake well to coat tomatoes with the vinegar mixture. Arrange tomatoes, cut side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in a 425 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until tomato skins are bubbly and dark red, but not burned. If you like, chop tomatoes.

  3. In a screw-top jar, combine the oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar, herb, the 1/8 teaspoon salt, and the 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cover and shake well.
  4. Arrange the romaine on 2 chilled salad plates. Top with the mushrooms, cranberries, and pecans. Place tomatoes to side of salad. Pour vinaigrette over salad. Serve immediately.
