Heirloom Tomato Salad

This is a great refreshing tomato recipe, regardless if you use heirloom tomatoes or not. I haven't seem them for sale but I'm probably not looking in the right places, I use the gorgeous red vine ripened ones sold at my local market.

4 tomatoes, sliced
1/4 blue cheese crumbles
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
4-5 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced

Slice tomatoes and onions and place them on a platter, sprinkle basil and blue cheese on top. Mix remaining ingredients in separate bowl and drizzle on top of tomato mixture. Serve immediately.
Serves 4
I used a bowl instead of a platter
Vinegar and Oil mixture
