DRESSING

Combine salad ingredients in a large salad bowl. Set aside.

Wash tomatoes & place in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients & process until the almonds are smooth & the rest of the ingredients have been well blended. Check the seasoning. Place in a glass jar & refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve with lots of fresh Italian home-made bread for a refreshing main dish salad in the summer.

VARIATION: Substitute pine nuts for the walnuts in the salad. Add a couple of mushrooms if so desired.
