Fresh Tomato Vinaigrette


From EatingWell:  The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006), The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

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



  1. 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.
  2. Skewer garlic clove with a fork and use it to vigorously mix vinegar into the grated tomato. Still mixing, slowly drizzle in oil. Add parsley (or basil) and season with salt and pepper. Discard garlic.
