Do you ever get sick of the same ol' boring salad dressings? Or hate spending big money on the fancy bottled stuff? Well look no further.
This creamy dressing tastes like bacon and tomatoes and is totally vegan!
I was seriously wowed when I first tasted this stuff. I wanted to put it on everything!
The ingredients were unlike any dressing I've ever made. I would have never thought to add liquid smoke to get that rich, bacon-y flavor, but it makes so much sense. The vinegar and dijon give it a really nice tanginess.
I'm excited to start experimenting with more homemade dressings now!
Smokey Tomato Vinaigrette
Makes approximately 2 cups of dressing
¾ cup olive oil
¼ cup red wine vinegar
1-2 cloves garlic
3 roma tomatoes (could also used about a cup or so of canned/jarred crushed tomatoes)
1 ½ teaspoons liquid smoke
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried basil (or 2 tablespoons fresh)
salt and pepper, to taste
Cut the tomatoes in half, and scoop out or squeeze out as many of the seeds as you can. Chop the tomatoes into smaller pieces. Add all of the ingredients to your high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste the dressing, season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Refrigerate until ready to use.
