Goat Cheese & Tomato Dressing

This delicious and different salad dressing is borrowed from Ellen Ogden's book "From the Cook's Garden." It is great on spinach or dark greens, and also makes a cool sandwich spread. This is an "adopted" recipe.

I have been looking for a tomato based dressing that wasn't sweet, and this was fantastic! I really enjoyed the flavor of the Tarragon vinegar. I served this on spinach salad and I did make some changes. I used Tomato and Basil feta cheese and added some crumbled feta to the dressing after it was finished. I did say a small prayer while the top of the blender was off, but there were no catastrophes ;] This was really outstanding, the whole family loved it! Thanks for posting, moxie!

I made this using Brie in place of the goat cheese. I really enjoyed this flavorful dressing. I used it on a simple tossed salad of mixed baby greens and it worked great! Thanks for sharing. Made for Football Pool 2011.
