Slice a couple of them up and lay them on a plate. Now whirl up a batch of homemade blue cheese dressing, which is as easy as pie to make and tastes approximately one million times better than that stuff in the bottle. Whenever I have any leftover blue cheese, homemade blue cheese dressing is in our future.
Now drizzle the dressing over the tomatoes, scatter on a few blue cheese crumbles and some chopped chives, get yourself a knife and fork and dig in. Sweet and salty summertime goodness. Give Heirlooms A Chance!
Serves: 4 servings
- For The Dressing
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 2 tablespoons buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
- Milk for thinning as needed
- 2 heirloom tomatoes
- Blue cheese crumbles
- Fresh chopped chives
- Make the dressing by combining all the dressing ingredients except for the milk and stirring with a fork until well combined (some chunks of blue cheese are good - it shouldn't be totally smooth). Thin it with just enough milk that it is still thick but pourable.
- Slice the tomatoes into ¼ inch slices, and lay in a single layer on a platter. Pour a puddle of dressing on top, sprinkle some blue cheese on top, scatter on the chives and serve.
