Roasting vegetables is an excellent way to bring out the natural sugars which is what gives them that gorgeous, rich taste. Tomatoes and garlic are especially flavorful when roasted which is what makes this Roasted Tomato Garlic Vinaigrette recipe so darn good! It’s a personal favorite on hearty pasta salads with lots of fresh veggies.
Roasted Tomato Garlic Vinaigrette
My best advice to is make roasted tomatoes and garlic in bulk. Then store them in the refrigerator to use in recipes. I like to keep them in jars and lightly cover them in extra virgin olive oil to keep them moist. It’s very similar to buying sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil from the store. Except these have a much richer flavor!
Small tomatoes like a cherry, grape, or Sweet 100 variety are perfect in recipes like my Roasted Tomato Garlic Vinaigrette. Just pre-heat your oven to 400°F. Line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Place 2 pints cherry tomatoes on tray. Lightly drizzle with 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Seasonal with kosher salt. Roast approximately 30 minutes until slightly charred and bursting. Store extra tomatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
