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.
