Keep it simple. Perfect seasonal tomatoes don’t need much fanfare. A drizzle of this basil cream dressing is easy to prepare and adds a fresh finish to a summer side. Eat up these jewels that possess amazing health benefits. Great source of vitamins A,K and B, along with the antioxidant lycopene. Use leftover dressing for a green salad at a later date.
