Summer Fresh Tomato Lime Basil Dressing

July 26, 2011

It’s all you need for a summertime dish. A lil’ drizzle here n’ there. It’s delish atop fresh summer green salads, grilled veggies and even a nice bowl of fresh fruit. Yes, fresh fruit. Why not drizzle a bit atop a bowl of fresh cantaloupe and melon with raspberries. Sounds pleasant, doesn’t it?

tomato plants and dressing

I snapped these pictures yesterday with my tomato plants in view so you can get a lil’ view of my nice fresh tomato plants that are starting to pop up nice n’ ruby red. I used my fresh Jersey garden tomatoes in this recipe and it was amazing. I think I consumed about 20 tomatoes this weekend. I made this dressing about 4 times and enjoyed it all weekend long. It’s a new favorite. And it’s fresh, of course. So, what’s not to love? Summer freshness, summer flavor, summer lovin’ in every bite.

Drizzle, drizzle. Mmmmmm.
