French Dressing?

It's summer vegetable eating season.  Which equals the need for salad dressings.  I personally HATE bottled, store-bought dressings, since they are loaded with MSG, modified food starch (gluten), artificial colors and flavors.  So we make our own whenever we can.

A long time ago, in Home Economics class, I was taught to make "French Dressing" which was basically a vinaigarette.  Today's bottled dressing is orange and contains heinous ingredients.  Today I made something in between.  It's a vinaigrette, but it contains tomatoes, which give it its lovely color.

On another note, iIn the world of bottled dressings, Russian = pink.  I'm wondering who decided that?  I'm not implying anything, mind you, I'm just sayin'!!!

As always, if you want the recipe, please comment.
