Heirloom Tomatoes and Goat Cheese with Basil Vinaigrette

I used to HATE tomatoes. Loathed them. Until I moved to San Francisco and had my first heirloom tomato. Over the last 5 years, I've become obsessed with heirlooms, and will eat them any chance I get (I will eat them on a boat, I will eat them with a get the picture.) We had some guests over for dinner last night and I made this "salad" to go with a pasta dish. The 5 of us licked the platter clean. One trick: don't use a knife to slice the goat cheese, use dental floss. Works like a charm.

1 packed cup fresh organic basil
4 Tablespoons EVOO
4 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
6ish medium heirloom tomatoes, various colors, sliced
6-8 oz goat cheese, thinly sliced
Coarse sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Put the basil, EVOO and vinegar in a blender and puree. Slice the tomatoes and cheese and arrange on a platter. Drizzle with the a good amount of the sauce (you'll probably have some left over) and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Serves 4-6.


  1. Dental floss to slice the goat cheese.....minted or regular?
