Heirloom Tomato, Red Onion, & Maytag Blue Cheese Salad
Tomato, red onion, and Maytag Blue cheese salad is simple,but is packed with lots of great flavor. I love to serve this delicious salad along with a great grilled steak. Steve and I made this salad for Bobby Flay, on Food Network's Bobby's Dinner Battle, along with a grilled flank steak. However, it was edited and not shown on TV. You have to make sure you are working with a ripe and seasonal tomato since they are the "star" of the salad. You can serve this salad layered (shown above) or tossed. As both the onion and blue cheese can overpower some palate, feel free to change the amount use depending on your taste preference.
