Photo: Lizzie Fuhr

Occasionally, I am prone to salad dressing ennui. I just can't take another balsamic vinaigrette. However, I recently found this antioxidant-rich tomato dressing that cures my boredom. It reminds me a bit of gazpacho, one of my most loved Summer treats.

Top off your favorite combination of greens with this tangy Summer dressing for a light, fresh, and flavor-packed change of pace. Keep reading to learn how to blend up this low-calorie recipe.

Tomato Paprika Salad Dressing

Tomato Paprika Salad Dressing


  1. 3/4 pound plum or other ripe tomatoes
  2. 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  3. 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  4. 1 small clove garlic, roughly chopped
  5. 1/2 teaspoon mild paprika
  6. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  7. Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. With a paring knife, cut a shallow x on the bottom of each tomato. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Add the tomatoes and boil 30 seconds.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the tomatoes to a bowl. When cool enough to handle, peel and discard their skin. Cut the tomatoes into quarters lengthwise. Using your fingers, discard the seeds. Transfer the tomatoes to a blender.
  3. Add the vinegar, sugar, garlic, and paprika, and puree until smooth. Remove the center cap, and with the motor running, add the oil in a steady stream, blending well. Season with salt and pepper.

I just made this with yellow heirloom tomatoes and boy is it tasty! Giabash6260 - I usually never put sugar in my dressings, but with this recipe I think it is necessary to a degree because the tomatoes, the garlic and the vinegar are so acidic you need something sweet to balance it out. You could always try it without thought and add some in at the end of the process if needed. If you like tomatoes you should definitely try it.

I made this! It was really good! I was too lazy to peel two tomatoes, so I just used one (so not quite 3/4 pound) and my paprika is very pungent, so I halved it. It was a really nice change!
