Cherry Tomato Salad with Buttermilk-Basil Dressing

21 Aug

Are your cherry and grape tomatoes coming in like gangbustersright now?

Ingredients

I am picking at least 7-10 a day and they add up so fast. Sometimes I give them out to friends and co-workers, and other times I am able to consume them on a daily basis.

Dressing and Tomatoes

I was able to make this delicious and healthy salad out of my cherry and grape tomatoes with only 5+ ingredients. It is creamy, without any cream. In a weird way, it could be a nice substitute for a potato salad, too!

Freshly Dressed

This salad is incredibly easy to put together and takes hardly any time. It would be an awesome addition to any summer picnic or BBQ.

    i wonder if this is similar to that shrimp dish i remember from your mom’s house that had a dill dressing…

      No – not really. The only similarity is the creaminess. But other than that it’s a mellow basil/shallot taste.
