Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing

Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing


I adapted this recipe from an excellent cookbook called Salads for Every Season by Myra Goodman.  The recipe makes a little more than a cup, and takes only 5 minutes to whip together.  With recipes this easy and good, why not try making your own dressing?

  1. I’ve been experimenting with making my own dressing’s lately. It’s so easy and tastes so much better than the bottled store bought stuff. Thanks for sharing this recipe 🙂

  2. I don’t buy bottled dressings anymore. This looks like it would be delicious! I am going to have to try it with some tomatoes from the farmer’s market! Thanks. 🙂
