    It is cool and creamy, making it great for summer salads. If time is short, make it ahead of time and store it in airtight containers. Preparation is an absolute snap!

    Fresh Tomatoes

    Overrun with fresh tomatoes from the garden? This recipe is a great way to utilize all that beautiful veg and not let anything go to waste.

    I use fresh, ripe tomatoes because generally I am low on time (and patience). I do have two small children. But if you want to further the flavor profile of this already awesome dressing, roast the tomatoes before adding.

    I used two large beefsteaks for this batch, but it also works with:

    • Grape Tomatoes
    • Plum Tomatoes
    • Yellow Tomatoes
    • Heirloom Tomatoes

    And generally any varieties you can get your hands on. Two large equals about 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped tomato.

    Homemade Dressing

    There are so many benefits to not resorting to store bought dressing when it comes to dressing. The first is no additives or preservatives. You may not think about it all that much, but fresh is best if you ask me.

    The only “make it last longer” ingredients you’ll find in my homemade salad dressing recipes is salt. And we are talking good salt – none of that icky, iodized stuff.

    Yuck! You can also choose how much or how little salt, mayonnaise, or olive oil to add.

    Second, it’s really and truly simple to make. Buying dressing from the store may seem like the best option, but homemade is SO much better. And did I mention how quick and easy it is?

    Oil Free Dressing

    This salad dressing recipe doesn’t use oil. Instead, it uses mayonnaise to give a rich and creamy texture.

    Making it homemade gives you so much flexibility with flavors and are never the same twice, so you never get bored. Feel like adding some fresh herbs? Go right ahead!

    It tastes great on roasted or grilled vegetables, chicken and seafood, or as a dipping sauce for your veggie tray

    If you are feeling really bold, serve it with some potato chips or even French fries for the next game. I promise you, that bowl will go so fast and your guests will love you for it.

    Tools:

    Mini Food Processor– I use this thing daily! It is by far my most used kitchen appliance, it is small and I throw all the parts into the dishwasher, well except the base and cord, of course!

    Salad Dressing Container– Since I making all my own dressings, I keep a few of these around to easily label, shake em up and keep them food for as long as possible in the refrigerator.

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • The first step of this soup is to prepare the tomatoes by skinning them. If you have never skinned a tomato before, have no fear, it is very easy. Fill a medium sauce pan ¾ with water, bring to a boil. Set up an ice bath directly next to the range. Score a “X” in the bottoms of all tomatoes.
    • Working in batches of 2-3, drop tomatoes into boiling water. Boil for 45-60 seconds. If the water does not fully cover your tomatoes, turn and boil on the other end for a few seconds.
    • Remove and immediately submerge in the ice bath. Continue with remaining tomatoes. If the skin does not start to peel in the ice bath, return to the boiling water for just a few minutes.
    • Remove tomatoes from ice bath and peel. Skin should come off easily.
    • Chop off stem end and then quarter. Using your fingers, gently press out the pulpy seed sections. Do not worry about getting it all, just the majority.
    • Place all ingredients into a small food processor, blend until smooth.
    • Can be refrigerated for 2-3 days. Drizzle over a fresh salad mix. Enjoy your Creamy Tomato Salad Dressing!
