Tomato Cilantro Vinaigrette

from Joyce White (Star Tribune 4/21/11) Note: You can substitute a generous 1/2 cup of cooked or canned beets, well drained and chopped, for the tomatoes in this vinaigrette. It's also good with roasted plum tomatoes which offer a delectable burnished flavor to the salad bowl. (good for lettuce but also great for mixing with cooked pasta or rice)
