TNT Broiled Tomato and Blue Cheese Salad

I served this with dinner the other night and it was very good. I found this recipe in a magazine.

Broiled Tomato and Blue Cheese Salad
6 plum tomatoes, cored and cut in half from top to bottom
Salt and pepper to taste
6 oz. blue cheese (roquefort, maytag blue, gorgonzola or stilton)
1 large head bibb or boston lettuce, leaves pulled from core intact
c vinaigrette dressing
Fresh chives or parsley for garnish, if desired

Set oven to broil, adjust rack is it is 4 from heat source.
Brush baking sheet with oil and put tomatoes cut sides up on sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Crumble cheese over top of tomatoes, flatten a bit.
Broil for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly. Remove and let cool a bit.
Put lettuce leaves on four plates, top each with three tomatoes and drizzle with vinaigrette, garnish and serve.

It actually sounds like the perfect way to make winter tomatoes edible! This may be our Valentine's salad this year. Thanks for the recipe.

Or plum tomatoes any time. I think they are always like "winter tomatoes" even in mid-summer. I use them all the time for roasted tomatoes or "sun dried" tomatoes. They are good for that as this recipe uses.

This does sound pretty good. The Rogue Creamery makes
a Smokey Blue Cheese and I bet it would be great in
this recipe. Thanks!
