Garden Tomatoes with Green Goddess Dressing

www.farmfoodieandfitness.comHere come the tomatoes finally! After the winter the Mid-Atlantic had we’ve had to wait a little longer for our gardens to catch up. But these perfect sweet things are popping up by the dozens and eagerly ripening. I seriously eat tomatoes like candy. I can just slice a couple of Beefsteaks, add a pinch of salt and pepper and that will be my lunch! Here is a little twist on some dressing that’s healthy, garden fresh, stocked with herbs, and perfect if you’re looking for a little different taste here and there. Use “Green Goddess” for dipping your veggies, marinade chicken or pork, or just top salads with this yummy goodness!

Salad

  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • 2 red Beefsteak tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Yellow Pear tomatoes
  • 1 cup Red Cherry tomatoes
  • 2 black or purple Krim tomatoes
  • 2 orange Golden Girl tomatoes

Grab every color of tomatoes you can. I just gave a few examples of names of the ones I grow in my garden. The more colors, shapes, and sizes the more beautiful this dish turns out! Slice, quarter, and even leave the little tomatoes whole, it makes no difference. Place them on a plate and smother with green goddess dressing.

 Green Goddess Dressing

  • 2 cups of plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup fresh chives
  • ½ cup fresh basil
  • ½ cup fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 clove fresh garlic
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of fresh ground pepper
  • Pinch of Cayenne pepper

Place garlic in blender and blend well. Add one cup yogurt, basil, chives, parsley, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and cayenne and blend. Add last cup of yogurt and blend again until smooth. Store remaining dressing in refrigerator up to a week.
