Day 230: Slow-Roasted Tomato Salad Dressing

I'm ever on the look-out for ways to use the Slow-Roasted Tomatoes that live in the freezer. Last night's Steak & Tomatoes was delicious.

Tonight's dressing was only so-so, especially since the vinegar overpowered the smoky tomato goodness.

ALANNA's TIPS

  • The inspiring recipe suggests roasting 4 plum tomatoes (halved, arranged cut-side up in a single layer on a baking sheet and seasoned with salt and pepper) for 35 minutes at 450F.

I was a little late to catch on to the slow roasting tomatoes idea, so now I only have about 6 containers left. For sure I will make more of them next year. I did try Muir Glen Organic Fire Roasted Tomatoes and they were pretty good as an alternative.
