Roasted Tomato Balsamic Vinaigrette

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"I once worked with a chef who made an amazingly delicious roasted tomato vinaigrette. He would roast a whole pan of Roma tomatoes until the sugars and acids would condense and caramelize and concentrate into a delicious mass. I thought I could duplicate it by using a really good, double-concentrate tomato paste and nicely aged balsamic vinegar. It worked."

I made this twice, because the tomato paste refused to emulsify the first time. The first time I whisked it and it had bits in it, so I used an immersion blender and it still had bits in it, th...

SO GOOD! And it all blended well. I don't know if it was the brand of tomato paste I used (Contadina) or if its because I used one of those wire Blender Balls for mixing (just put it in the co...

This is great! Will be serving a side garden salad on Thanksgiving and this will be the dressing!

This dressing was really good. I served it atop my Butterhead lettuce. Yum!
