white wine vinegar
I made a double batch. This is very good. I am always on the lookout for healthy dressings and vinaigrettes. This qualifies! I used a large tomato from my wife's garden and had to make a special trip to the store to get white wine vinegar, which is fine. I was out of it anyway. It was great warm. I can't wait for it to cool and marinate for a couple of days!
This is a good starting point, but there's room for improvement. I really like the idea because it has the potential to be a flavorful yet healthy salad dressing (which can be hard to find). I would adjust the amount of thyme next time because I thought it was a bit overwhelming. I'd play with the other spices too - maybe try fresh herbs and add oregano or parsley, and also salt, pepper, garlic, and onion. I might play around with the vinegar too - maybe try balsamic. Sun dried tomatoes might be a good touch too. The options are endless!
I have been searching for a good tomato vinaigrette! this was simple to make and the spices were just enough, the vinager was not overwhelming! Perfect for my pasta salad!
I used red wine vinegar, 1 whole tomato, basil, ground mustard, dill, 1/8 tsp steak seasoning, salt and pepper to taste, and 1 clove of garlic. Sooo good!
We're about to have this with dinner. I doubled it and added oil but I'm not too impressed. It's a little bitter and I'm wondering which ingredient may have made that happen since my basil and tomatoes are fresh from my garden...maybe my dried mustard is bitter?
i added garlic and used red wine vinegar. really fresh tasting. i used this in a mixed green salad.
low cal, but needed a little more flavor
I had an abundance of tomatoes from my garden to use, so my search for a recipe led me here. This recipe reminded me of a salad dressing I used to adore, so of course they quit making it (UGH)...so I made this recipe exactly, but with the following additions- I added a clove of garlic because everyone knows garlic makes most things better, and I added some bacon bits because the discontinued dressing I loved had them, plus everyone knows bacon makes everything better. Then I tossed this in a Ziplock bag with some boneless, skinless chicken breasts, let them marinate overnight and most of the day, and grilled them up. Very, very fresh and tasty. A lovely, flavorful healthy meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe Jen! I will surely make this again, as both a marinade and a salad dressing :)
