Red Wine Tomato Vinaigrette

Probably my favorite present I got for Christmas this year (besides my Kate Spade bag/wallet of course) was my kitchen ninja “master prep” food processor. I am obsessed. Thank you Mom and Dad.

I never knew how much I was missing out until I got it…and now I have no idea how I survived cooking for the three years prior to having it.

Lately I have been trying to do more homemade food, as opposed to buying. I have been making Onyx homemade dog treats (which is actually saving me so much money), and I have also started experimenting with making my own salad dressings.

Here is a bomb ‘Red Wine Tomato Vinaigrette’ dressing that I am loving at the moment.
