Looking for a way to use an overripe tomato and add some dazzle to your salad? From the following basic recipe you can add dried tarragon, a garlic clove or some roasted peppers to change it up – but the basic recipe is also delicious as is.

Here’s what you’ll need:
• an overripe washed, organic tomato or a handful of cherry tomatoes
• 1 Tablespoon good Mayonnaise
• 1-2 pinches of kosher salt
• 1 Tablespoon white balsamic vinegar

Cream using a blender, food processor or hand tool you want to purée/cream these ingredients. The consistency should be more fluid than Thousand Island dressing but not as liquid as oil and vinegar dressing. You can add a touch more mayo or vinegar to get right balance.

I’ve also been using this dressing with leftover roasted chicken on a bed of lettuce with scallions. Mix of colors are beautiful.
