Author: Julia
  • 2 large heirloom tomatoes sliced ¼” thick
  • 1 Fuji apple chopped ½-inch chunks
  • 2 Tbsp pine nuts toasted
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • ¼ cup grapeseed oil or olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch dried parsley
  1. Lay the sliced tomatoes on a large serving plate.
  2. Toast the pine nuts in a small skillet over medium high heat until golden brown, about three minutes.
  3. Sprinkle pine nuts on top of the tomato slices along with the hunks of apple and blue cheese crumbles.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the oil and balsamic vinegar until well combined.
  5. Drizzle the oil/vinegar over the tomato slices (you may have some leftover oil and vinegar, which you can use for salad dressing later).
  6. Sprinkle salt and ground black pepper over the sliced tomatoes to taste and garnish with fresh or dried parsley.
