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.








ingredients

1 heirloom tomato, cut horizontally 
1 red onion, cut horizontally 
2 tablespoons Maytag Blue Cheese, crumbled
2 teaspoons balsamic vinaigrette
Sea or Kosher Salt
Fresh cracked black pepper
preparation 
Cut the tomato and red onion with the same diameter or thickness.  Place one slice of tomato on one end of your serving dish. Layer a whole slice of red onion on top, slightly offset. Repeat for the remaining slices of tomato and onion. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Drizzle with the balsamic vinaigrette. Crumble the bleu cheese on top. Serve immediately.

For a "tossed" version:

Cut the tomatoes in bite size chunks and thinly slice the red onions. Toss the tomatoes and onions in a bowl along with the balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper. Top with the crumbled blue cheese. Enjoy!

  4. I recently purchased a bottle of 18 year old balsamic. I can't wait to try this recipe as soon as the heirloom tomatoes are ripe.

  6. That, however, is about to change. Starting in January, a new state law will require doctors to. At least that appears to be the message coming from Pence allies, and perhaps the vice president himself, as the Trump White House reels from a series of interlocking scandals that threaten all manner of political.
