    I'm not sure where I found this recipe, but I tweaked it a little and it turned out great!

    Looking for a sweet, tomato-based dressing or dip for salads, onion rings or some crusty French bread?  This recipe is a sure fire way to use up some of those summer surplus veggies! 

    • 1 large tomato, halved
    • 1 large onion, halved
    • ½ cup mayo
    • 1 tsp chopped garlic
    • ½ tsp smoked paprika
    • ½ tsp rib rub
    • ¼ tsp salt (could have used more S&P)
    • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
    • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (probably could have gone to 1/2 tsp here, too)
    Smoke the tomatoes and onions at 240 to 250 degrees using hickory wood for about 2 hours.  In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend on high for 30 to 60 seconds.

    Sounds interesting thanks for sharing. Now about that over abundant amount of veggies, if I could use green tomatoes and lettuce for this sauce Id be set!
  3. Do you recommend using Roma Tomatoes or regular tomatoes?  And use a sweet Onion or Cooking Onion?

    We used a few romas, but we didn't have enough in the garden.  Made up the difference with Better Boys...I think.

    Definitely use a vidalia or sweet onion.  The white onions were a little edgy.
