Blast from the past: tomato-flavoured vinaigrette

pearl3 | Jun 17, 2007 11:19 AM

A loooong time ago, as a child, I was taken to George's Spaghetti House once in a while. What prompts my question[s] to follow is this: their [I guess] house salad contained lots of fresh ricotta and a tomato-based vinaigrette that was slightly sweet.

Having gone to International Cheese on Hirons, I just bought some fresh ricotta and I am hopelessly craving that strange vinaigrette--it worked brilliantly with the ricotta, I swear.

Would anyone remember that vinaigrette or anything similar? Any recipes [wrong thread maybe]?

There existed at the long-gone Round Window Greek resto on the Danforth a seafood extravaganza dish with a somewhat similar tomato/sweet sauce.

About once a year, I get a craving for the flavour combination described, and googling yielded nothing so even a shared memory would be soothing.
