I've made roasted tomato spreads and cheeses, but I don't remember ever doing it with fresh tomatoes in a cream base. It's fantastic. You get the bright freshness of the tomato flavor against the tang of the yogurt. It's almost like a soup, and works great against any vegetable, bread, fish, or poultry. Plus, it takes less than five minutes to make.
*1/2 lb tomatoes, seeded and petite diced
*1 C plain yogurt (Greek or regular)
*1 Tb lemon juice
*dash of salt
*dash of dill weed
1. Stir together tomatoes, lemon juice, salt, and dill.
2. Stir in yogurt.
3. Chill and serve. If it sits overnight, some of the whey and tomato water will pool up. You can either drain it off or stir it back in before serving.
