Very often tomato salads are paired with a more acidic dressing, so this creamy dairy dressing is a really nice change. Not only is this salad refreshing and delicious, it’s beautiful as well.
Toss cherry tomatoes with scallions, salt and pepper.
Combine milk and lemon juice. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes at room temperature.
Add sour cream, basil, and garlic and mix well.
Dressing can be prepared ahead of time and stored for up to a week.
Drizzle dressing over tomatoes and toss.
Divide salad in pretty glasses or serving dishes.
Run a wooden skewer through the pita wedges and balance over each individual glass.
