Heirloom Tomato Salad with Crumbled Blue Cheese
Heirloom tomatoes are so special and delicious that it is worth the wait until their arrival at the
market in late August. A seller at my local Farmers’ Market has won all kinds of awards for her
heirloom tomatoes. She describes each one like one of her children. I always visit her booth first
because I want to get the first pick. She never lets me in early, even when I am wearing my chef ’s
uniform. The minute the market opens, I rush up and fill my basket. This simple salad dresses the
tomatoes up to their best advantage. It would go well with grilled steak, especially rib eye.

5 pounds assorted heirloom tomatoes
1/2 cup sliced Vidalia onion rings
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 bunch basil leaves, torn into pieces
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
21/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

■ Cut the tomatoes into different shapes,
including quarters and slices, and place on a
large serving dish. Arrange the onions on top.
Sprinkle with the pine nuts, basil, and blue
cheese. Drizzle with the vinegar and oil.
Generously season with salt and pepper.

A hungry stomach seldoms scorns plain food.
