I am always looking for different things to create. Last summer my daughter was hooked on french dressing. Hmm, I remember that. It had a tangy, slightly sweet tomato flavour. It was delicious.
Now I’m not trying to say that my tomato vinaigrette taste just like it because I haven’t had french dressing in over five years. It does remind me of it. I think that it might be ever better, with a more sophisticated flavour.
Either way, this is a delicious fresh dressing to top any salad!
Tomato Vinaigrette Salad Dressing (Paleo/ Vegan/ Dairy Free/ Nut Free/ Refined Sugar Free)
2 medium size tomatoes-washed, and chopped (approx. 2 cups)
2 Tbsp. red onion (or mild onion of choice) (or 2 tsp. onion powder)
1/3 apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. olive oil ( or desired oil)
1 Tbsp. mustard powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. maple syrup or desired sweetener or 8-10 drops of liquid stevia-optional
Put all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. Makes 2 cups of dressing. If too thick add 1/4 cup of water. Store in covered container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
