get fresh! tomato blue cheese salad

1 162

Whenever you can–always buy FRESH. August and September are THE months to experience the true flavor of tomatoes and this salad is the perfect end-of-the summer treat. I am a big fan of Bon Appetit Magazine. A few years ago I discovered this recipe in the magazine and have been serving it up ever since–never without praise. I make it with or without the garlic toasted bread and I typically serve it with a grilled rib eye steak. (See next week’s Grilled Rib Eye Recipe). You can find the original tomato salad recipe at Epicurous.com).

3 celery stalks, sliced thin on diagonal
1 1/2 cups coarsely crumbled blue cheese

Combine 1/3 cup oil, cherry or grape tomatoes, and green onions in medium bowl; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Overlap tomato slices in concentric circles on platter, alternating colors.
