Grating tomatoes is a terrific technique for getting body into the dressing without adding a lot of oil. Toss this summery dressing with romaine or spinach.
About 1/2 cup
Active Time: 10 minutes |
Total Time: 10 minutes
2 vine-ripened tomatoes, halved and seeded
1 small clove garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley, or basil
Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
Set a box grater over a shallow bowl. Rub the cut side of a tomato half against the coarse holes to squeeze out tomato flesh. Discard skin. Repeat with remaining tomato halves.
