I used more then .25 pound (closer to .5) of tomatoes, and the oil-acid balance was still way off. The dressing was absolutely dominated by the flavor of the oil, which was unpleasant. I think it is because I used standard grocery store Romas instead of a juicier, fresher variety of tomato. No rating until I try it with diff tomatoes. V-8 and Wesson would have tasted better then what I concocted with the cheap mealies I used. It's not fair to ^Dancer to rate before I have tried to make this right - it sounds so good!
