Tomato Basil Salad Dressing

I love Marie Callender's tomatoe basil salad dressing and would like to duplicate it. Anyone have any ideas? I tried google and came up with nothing, also FTV. I know it contains canned tomatoes (think they are canned, but they could be fresh roasted), oil, basil, and garlic. But that combination does not taste right.

This is one that I use. I love it one salads and over roasted vegetables. I have not had Marie's so I do not know if it is close.

Tomato Basil Dressing
1 medium tomato
1/4 c fresh basil leaves
4 tb mild vinegar (I like champagne or rice wine)
1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

1.Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until creamy. Adjust flavors if necessary.
