I use this as a salad dressing and as the marinade for a cucumber and tomato salad. Recipe makes approximately a 1/2 cup.
1 T sun-dried tomato paste
1/4 C olive oil
1/2 t white sugar
1 small clove garlic minced/pressed
3 T balsamic vinegar
Pinch of salt and a shake of pepper
Whip into an emulsion. A tablespoon of fresh basil leaves, chopped, is a nice addition. If the balsamic flavor is too strong, add another tablespoon of olive oil.
