This recipe has been a long time coming. Almost once a week I get an email from someone in look of a homemade, natural low calorie Italian dressing. I have tried countless recipes but nothing really worked until this one. The base is actually made from a tomato and roasted red pepper. From there you add all the typical Italian dressing components and the end result is a delicious Italian inspired dressing. I recommend making it a day in advance so the flavors have time to blend and really come through. Play with the level of spices to suit your preferences and make sure to use a nice, ripe tomato so it’s packed with flavor.
