One of my favorite pantry items is Tomato Powder. This little gem is incredibly useful. Dried, tomato powder may be used in every way that tomato paste is. Simply add water to make a paste. Or add it directly to items to give a tomato flavor. It can even be used to make ketchup, barbecue sauce and other items. It’s great for food storage since a small amount reconstitutes and takes up less space than canned tomato sauce.
This tomato flavored salad dressing is fast becoming a family favorite. If you like a little more tomato flavor add additional Tomato Powder (that’s an affiliate link and there are others in this post) 1/4 teaspoon at a time.
Tomato-y Salad Dressing
1/2 cup mayonnaise (make your own)
1 tablespoon tomato powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 pickle, finely minced
1 teaspoon powdered garlic
1 tablespoon lime juice
Sea salt to taste
Combine all ingredients in a jar and mix well. Keep leftovers refrigerated and use within a few days.
