~ sun-dried tomato vinaigrette ~

Yes. I’ve made yet another homemade salad dressing. Nobody has complained or sent me anti-homemade salad dressing- hate mail, so I will continue πŸ˜‰ This one is realllllly good.

1/4 cup good quality balsamic vinegar ( I like William’s Sonoma )

1/4 cup mincedΒ  sun-dried tomatoes

3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 Tablespoons red wine

2 Tablespoons water

1 Tablespoon fresh chopped oregano

1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons honey

Place all ingredients in a canning jar. Shake well. Salt and pepper to taste. Will keep in your refrigerator for one week.

    Another delicious sounding dressing, Melissa! Have you ever eaten at Donatelle’s in White Bear Lake? They have a sundried tomato basil dressing and yours sounds a lot like it (except for the oregano) and it is so good. We order it just so we can dip our bread in it!

        My favorite is the veal parm. We just discovered Donatelle’s a few years ago when it was on an episode of “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives”. It’s now one of our favorite spots because it is so classic! πŸ™‚

          I use to go there on Friday nights when I was a teenager…had a bunch of friends from WBL and it was their hangout πŸ™‚ Ended up living in WBL for 10 years and going there once every few months. Great little place. Try the pizza fries sometime πŸ˜‰ xo

    My hubby and I want to start making our own dressings, I hate all the extra stuff in store bought dressings. This really sounds wonderful, and a great mix of flavor! Take care, Terra

    Hi Melissa-

    I made this dressing and while the flavor is amazing :):):)- the dressing does not look like your picture but rather like a balsamic dressing. I didn’t know if you had perhaps used a white balsamic?
    Again, the taste is amazing but I just love the deep red color like you have. Any suggestions?

    Thanks:) Susie

      Hi Susie πŸ™‚ That is strange….hmmmmm….well, maybe zip it in the food processor? I really chop those tomatoes fine. hope this helps. xo

        that was my exact thought to put it in the blender/food processor to extract that beautiful red hue! Thank you!

    Is this sun dried tomatoes in olive oil?

      That’s preferable, Elaine, but you could just use the dried variety if that’s all you have.
