Sweet and Tangy Sun Dried Tomato Salad Dressing

I’m rarely a fan of salad dressing. If you use great lettuces and veggies, little more than oil, vinegar, and one or two extra ingredients are necessary. I’ve never understood why people drown delicious, fresh vegetables in disgusting, processed salad dressing. But then I realized one day when I harvested some lettuce from the garden that was less-than-perfect and didn’t have anything else ripe to accompany it, that I needed a big, blockbuster dressing. This is what I came up with. So anytime you have a salad that is less than inspirational in terms of freshness or variety, this makes a great dressing that will add a great flavor without all the chemicals and nastyness of a store-bought dressing. Simple and deeeeelicious!

If you're throwing a salad together with a little advanced notice, adding chilled Incredible Jerk Tofu is amazing with this salad dressing.

Prep time: 1/2 cocktail

1 cup rehydrated sundried tomatoes
3 scallions, whole
3 TBSP honey
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
3 TBSP soy sauce (and a few dashes more, if needed)
½ cup canola or olive oil
½ cup water

Combine all ingredients in blender and purée until smooth. Add additional water if you want a lighter consistency to the dressing. Top any salad with the dressing!
