Sundried Tomato Vinaigrette

I recently discovered the Frantic Home Cook, which is a great little food blog with witty writing and great instructional pictures. One of the first recipes that caught my eye was her Simple Vinaigrette, which I wanted to make for the plethora of salads I've been eating lately. The recipe is super easy, only requiring measuring and mixing, so this would be a great and easy dressing to always have on hand. I made a few variations, using up some of the leftover sundried tomatoes I had from the Sundried Tomato and Kalamata Olive Stuffed Mushrooms, and I think they add a lovely little flavor punch.

Sundried Tomato Vinaigrette

Sundried Tomato Vinaigrette

1/4 c red wine vinegar
1/2 c olive oil
1/4 c oil from sundried tomatoes
1/2 c minced sundried tomatoes, oil-packed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
2 tsp onion powder
2 tbsp stone ground mustard
1/4 c shredded parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients, shake well, and chill in the refrigerator for flavors to get all friendly-like.

This sounds like such a delicious dressing! I really like the idea of using sun-dried tomatoes and their oil, especially since I have a big jar of them just waiting to be used!

Thanks :)

Culinary Chase - let me know how you enjoy it!

Frantic Cook - you bet! I'm such a huge fan of your blog.

JD - I try and use the oil whenever possible since it's so flavorful.
