Occasionally, I am prone to salad dressing ennui. I just can't take another balsamic vinaigrette. However, I recently found this antioxidant rich, tasty new tomato dressing that certainly cures my boredom.
It reminds me a bit of gazpacho, one of my favorite summer treats. I would use the dressing with a mild green, like butter lettuce, and it works well with avocado and goat cheese too. You can also use this dressing for dipping bread, but it is too thin for veggies.
So don't succumb to the salad dressing doldrums! To see the recipe, just read more
