This is a summer favorite of ours. It is ready in under 10 minutes, refreshing, and flavorful. The lemon and dill blend together wonderfully in this creamy dressing.
Every year I plant a vegetable garden and I always plant too many tomato plants. The funny thing was this year I bought less so I’d have room in the garden for more of a variety but my husband and my mom each bought me a few plants too. I have a dozen tomato plants. We will be eating tomato salad a lot.
My husband loves his mom’s tomato salad which is tomatoes. raw onions, Italian seasoning, salt, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. I like adding the cucumbers and using a creamy dressing in mine. Sometimes I’ll throw in some kalamata olives for a Greek taste.
This dressing is also excellent on a green salad. I prefer creamy dressings most of the time and this is one of my top choices.
