3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Combine cherry tomatoes, vinegar, garlic and Dijon mustard in a food processor and process until well blended. With food processor is still on, slowly pour in olive oil until mixture is blended.


Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste and transfer to a serving vessel.

1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cucumbers, peeled and seeded

*They would also be good diced in just about any cold pasta salad.
