Dressing Essentials: Summer Tomato & Honey Delight

Andy Anderson !


This dressing is a Summer delight. Nice fresh garden tomatoes, lovingly blended with fresh clover honey, and extra virgin olive oil.

The base of the recipe comes from my French dressing; however, I lightened it up with fresh clover honey, and left out some of the heat.

It’s light, and perfect for those warm Summer days, when you want something to eat, but you don’t want to heat up the kitchen. How about a nice refreshing salad, and how about this dressing?

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Dressing Essentials: Summer Tomato & Honey Delight


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Blanch, peel, roughly chop the tomatoes, and drain the excess liquid.
  4. Add all the ingredients, except the olive oil, to a blender, or food processor fitted with an S-Blade.
  5. Blend until the ingredients are completely liquefied.
  6. Chef’s Note: I’m using white pepper; as opposed to black pepper because it has a nice sweet heat.
  7. Chef’s Note: You can’t over-blend this dressing, so go for it.
  8. Leaving the blender on high, slowly drizzle the olive oil into the ingredients, until they begin to thicken slightly.
  9. Chef’s Note: Slowly adding oil in this manner is called creating an emulsion.
  10. Cover, and place in the fridge overnight before using for the first time.
  11. Chef’s Note: This dressing will stay fresh in the fridge for 5 to 7 days… that is, if it lasts that long.
  13. Serve over some fresh Summer greens. Enjoy.
  14. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
