Garden Fresh Tomato Vinaigrette

Tomatoes, heavy on the vine, are peaking in flavor and feeling plump with fresh tomato juice. How many ways can I serve them to celebrate the abundance of a Nebraska summer?

One method I recently discovered that garnered 5 star reviews and entry into my column of summer favorites is a recipe for Tomato Vinaigrette.  The recipe asks for fresh garden tomatoes because they need to be juicy with a pulp that can be scraped from the skin and into a bowl. 

NOW is the season for Tomato Vinaigrette! 

I eat it with a spoon!  The tomatoes bring a sweetness intensified by a tablespoon of Buzz Savories’ local honey and balanced with a light rice vinegar and 1 teaspoon of Buzz Savories Spicy Beer Mustard.  Buzz Savories Spicy Beer Mustard brings  accents of turmeric and allspice and mustard seeds to the vinaigrette so it dresses the lettuces and vegetables with beads of a unique and delicious flavor.
