Cherry Tomato Vinaigrette
makes about 4 1/2 cups
Tomatoes were one of the first plants that I remember learning how to plant as a child and I used to love how all parts of the plant (the leaves and fuzzy stems) smelled like tomatoes. This cherry tomato vinaigrette is super flavorful and can be used in many different ways. Use it as a bruschetta topping or toss it with torn, stale bread to make a panzanella. Place a ball of fresh burrata or mozzarella in a shallow bowl and spoon the cherry tomatoes around it. Use this to dress grilled fish, roast chicken, grilled steak, pork chops, and grilled vegetables.Author:
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbs. Pizza Dust Seasoning (7290)
1 ½ lbs. cherry tomatoes, stems removed and sliced in half
1-2 Tbs. red wine vinegar
Place oil in a small sauce pan and place over medium-high heat. Heat until oil reaches 300F (just before it starts smoking). Remove from heat and stir in the Pizza Dust Seasoning. Mixture should sizzle for a a couple seconds.
Place cherry tomato halves in a mixing bowl. Pour olive oil mixture over tomatoes and stir to combine. Add 1 Tbs. of red wine vinegar and mix well. Taste vinaigrette and if it needs a little more acid, add the other Tbs. of vinegar.
