Roasted Tomato Balsamic Vinaigrette

Roasted Tomato Balsamic Vinaigrette

Chef John

"I once worked with a chef who made an amazingly delicious roasted tomato vinaigrette. He would roast a whole pan of Roma tomatoes until the sugars and acids would condense and caramelize and concentrate into a delicious mass. I thought I could duplicate it by using a really good, double-concentrate tomato paste and nicely aged balsamic vinegar. It worked."

I had never heard of double concentrated tomato paste before, but while I was shopping the other day, sure enough, there it was on the top shelf. (It's sold by the tube, and the tube is in a box...

This dressing has a deep, rich tomato flavor and just the right amount of tang from the vinegars. I have an abundance of fresh basil now, so I did add a little chopped basil to the vinaigrette....

Very tasty dressing only thing is I would recommend doubling maybe even tripling the recipe. You only get maybe less then a quarter cup of dressing if you follow the recipe as is.

Pretty easy to make with first class ingredients. I love the roasted tomato paste and never thought about using it in a salad dressing. It works perfectly!!

This is great! Will be serving a side garden salad on Thanksgiving and this will be the dressing!

This dressing was really good. I served it atop my Butterhead lettuce. Yum!
