MJ's Tasty Heirloom Tomatoes

I know that the season for the Heirloom Tomato is over but I thought of sharing this very tasty salad that I have created and served at several parties this summer. I never thought I would love tomatoes more than ever! If you love tomatoes, try making this salad and substitute with firm beefsteak tomatoes or regular red tomatoes if you can't find heirloom.

Ingredients: Serves 2

- 2 big heirloom tomato or beefsteak tomato
- 1/2 cup of chopped fresh basil
- 1 ripe but firm diced (for crunchiness) peach or nectarine
- 1/2 cup Blue Cheese and Gorgonzola Cheese combined
- Paul Newman's Own Olive Oil & Vinegar Dressing
- salt and pepper

Slice the tomatoes and arrange on a plate and drizzle with salt and pepper. Spread the chopped fresh basil on the tomatoes, then layer with chopped peaches or nectarines and the combined cheeses. Drizzle the salad with Paul Newman's dressing or any vinegrette dressing you prefer.

2nd Option: Substitute with Blueberries if peaches not available
