Tomatoes and blue cheese are a match made in heaven in this simple summer tomato blue cheese salad! Hurray for fresh local tomato season!


For The Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • Milk for thinning as needed

For the Salad

  • 2 heirloom tomatoes
  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • Fresh chopped chives


  1. 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.
  2. Slice the tomatoes into 1/4 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.
