I originally posted this as a guest post two weeks ago on Tastes Better From Scratch! Hey everybody! I am super excited to be sharing one of my all time favorite recipes with you today, homemade red wine tomato vinaigrette! I kid you not.. sometimes I eat this stuff just plain with a spoon. Then I tell myself it’s not that big of a deal, because it’s not even that bad for you, haha. It is seriously the best salad dressing of all time, and I have no trouble making that claim! We love it on any green salad, or to dunk some crusty french bread into, or my absolute favorite use- on this bowtie pasta salad! You really can’t go wrong.
If you have never made your own salad dressing before, don’t be alarmed, it is beyond easy. Plus, you may never have to buy dressing again ;).
Who’s ready for this deliciousness? Okay, let’s get to it then.
Red Wine Tomato Vinaigrette
- 2/3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 28 oz ready-cut peeled tomatoes
- 2 packages Italian salad dressing mix
- 2 Tbs Parmesan cheese finely grated
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp basil
- 1/8 tsp thyme
- 3 tsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp garlic
- Add all ingredients into a blender.
- Pulse 4-5 times.
- Chill and enjoy on salad.
Mmmmm. It is creamy, flavorful, tomato goodness I tell you. Don’t be discouraged by the decent sized ingredients list, you will have almost everything you need in your cupboards! If you are skeptical because you have never tasted a dressing like this before, prepare to be amazed. I have seriously never had anyone dislike it. I made it last weekend and my brother in laws dunked tortilla chips in it (which is not a recommendation, by the way, haha).
