I love having interesting dips to serve with the Shabbos challah, but I always feel a little silly spending as much time on a dip as I do on a “real” dish.
That’s why I love this quick tomato dip — it takes just a few minutes, especially if you use my no-fail method for skinning tomatoes.

(Tomato dip recipe is tweaked from Enlitened Kosher Cooking.)
3 tomatoes, skinned and quartered
4 small cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp light mayo
3 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 sprinkle salt
1 sprinkle freshly ground black pepper
Skin tomatoes (directions on my blog: http://morequicheplease.com/2011/10/tips-for-the-chef-how-to-skin-a-tomato/). Use bright red ones to get a nicely colored dip!
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until nicely combined. Be careful not to over-process so you don’t end up with liquid.
Serve cold with the salatim at the first course of a Shabbos meal.
