This recipe hails from a 1985 cookbook titled: The Lose Weight Naturally Cookbook by Sharon Claessens. Mom passed this out-of-print Rodale Press book (my favorite publisher) on to me. The title is misleading, because I find it to be more of a health-directed than a lose-weight cookbook. The recipes are awesome. Look for it in a used bookstore… and grab it if you find one. This recipe is one of my go-to favorites for salad dressings. A bright tomato-ey taste and the ingredients are pantry staples. Hopefully, the beautiful red color comes through in my photos.
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/4 cup white wine vinegar (I use rice vinegar)
- 2 tbs olive oil (this can be left out for a good tasting, fat-free version)
- 2 tbs tomato paste
- 1 tsp honey (I substitute agave nectar)
- 1 clove garlic
- dash of cayenne pepper.
