Reviews for Tomatoes with Buttermilk Vinaigrette

Good but different flavor. I halved the recipe and used dried tarragon instead of fresh.
This recipe was just "okay" for me. It just wasn't as flavorful as I had hoped. I even tried eating again the next day but was still a little disappointed with the overall flavor of this dish.
I thought it was very good, I like the looks of it, colorful addition to a plate.
The dressing was a bit too watery-I suppose it cold be thickened up a bit with greek yogurt! If the buttermilk was combined with some Miracle Whip to lessen the tanginess, this would have been a more appealing salad.
I made in in my trusty Vita-mix with fresh basil from my yard instead of tarragon, which doesn't grow in the Texas heat. A good alternative to Italian-style vinaigrettes, but not as flavorful as I like (I'll kick up the spice next time). Also good on green salad.
