With machine running, gradually add 1/4 to 1/3 cup cold water and blend until dressing is smooth and pourable. Transfer to a small bowl and season with salt and pepper.

We thought this was a great way to use our homegrown tomatoes, lettuce and herbs last summer.

This was good, not excellent though. I used Thai basil that I had left over and a tiny amount of mint. The dressing with the red wine vinegar was good, but the combination of warm rice on cold arugula was better in theory - it got kind of soggy. Overall, it was a good meal, but I'd try a new recipe before making it again.
