Smoked Onion and Tomato Dressing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm not sure where I found this recipe, but I tweaked it a little and it turned out great!

 

Looking for a sweet, tomato-based dressing or dip for salads, onion rings or some crusty French bread?  This recipe is a sure fire way to use up some of those summer surplus veggies! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 large tomato, halved
  • 1 large onion, halved
  • ½ cup mayo
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp rib rub
  • ¼ tsp salt (could have used more S&P)
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (probably could have gone to 1/2 tsp here, too)

 

Smoke the tomatoes and onions at 240 to 250 degrees using hickory wood for about 2 hours.  In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend on high for 30 to 60 seconds.

Sounds interesting thanks for sharing. Now about that over abundant amount of veggies, if I could use green tomatoes and lettuce for this sauce Id be set!

Do you recommend using Roma Tomatoes or regular tomatoes?  And use a sweet Onion or Cooking Onion?

We used a few romas, but we didn't have enough in the garden.  Made up the difference with Better Boys...I think.

Definitely use a vidalia or sweet onion.  The white onions were a little edgy.
