Add a pop of color and flavor to mealtime with this versatile dressing.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil, divided
  • 1 cup NatureSweet® Cherubs®
  • 1 medium garlic clove, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium shallot, coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

Instructions:

  1. Heat 1 Tablespoon of the grapeseed oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering.
  2. Add tomatoes and sear, stirring occasionally, until the skins pucker and begin to color, about 2 minutes. (Be careful: some tomatoes might burst)
  3. Stir in the garlic and shallot. Cook until slightly softened, about 1 minute more.
  4. Transfer the tomato mixture to a small, deep mixing bowl, add vinegar, and purée with an immersion blender. (You can also blend the tomato mixture in a blender, but allow the mixture to cool slightly first and use caution when blending hot items)
  5. Slowly add the remaining 1/2 cup grapeseed oil and olive oil in a thin, steady stream, blending constantly with the immersion blender, until well incorporated.
  6. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, mix in the fresh parsley and adjust seasoning as desired.
