This is a great dressing for when those garden-fresh tomatoes are available.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place cherry tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle 2 T olive oil over tomatoes.
  4. Shake pan to lightly coat tomatoes with oil.
  5. Sprinkle with 1/2 t salt and 1/2 t pepper.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tomato skins begin to burst.
  7. In a food processor or blender, combine roasted tomatoes and garlic.
  8. Pulse until smooth.
  9. With the motor running, add remaining 1/2 t salt, remaining 1/2 t pepper, lemon juice, vinegar and remaining olive oil.
  10. Drizzle over your favorite salad!

Excellent! I found it great because I had grape tomatoes I didn't want to go to waste. Cooked themin the oven. Added balsamic vinagre and some olive oil for great flavor with the garlic - easy and great. Thanks for posting.

Loved this dressing! Tangy, but not overly so. I cut the salt in 1/2 (just used in the roasting) and thought that was enough. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR.
