Gorgonzola-Tomato Salad

"This is wonderful when you can grab your tomatoes straight off the plant....Simple and easy. I suggest you only use fresh parsley and basil for this. Prep time does not include the 30 minutes the cheese spends in the freezer :)"

Ready In:




  • Place the cheese in the freezer for 30 minutes. (Makes it easier to grate).
  • Grate the cheese into a small bowl. Add the parsley, shallot and basil, stirring gently to combine.
  • Arrange the tomato slices on a large serving platter or on 6 individual salad plates. Sprinkle the cheese mixture over the tomato slices.
  • Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste. Beat with a wire whisk. Drizzle the dressing over the salad.

    Lovely recipe! My tomatoes were a bit disappointing - so very nice and red on the outside and I even let them sit on the counter a couple of days - not nice and red inside! But one knows that with the right tomatoes this would be outstanding. Even with not perfect ones it was truly very good.
    Very good! I used baby heirloom tomatoes and dried herbs. I was out of lemons (fresh and bottled juice) so I subbed orange juice. I love gorgonzola cheese so this was a perfect way to serve it. Made for a light lunch with some crusty bread. Will be making this again! Made for I Recommend Tag.

    Absolutely wonderful! We really liked the flavors in this salad, & especially the use of the Gorgonzola, & I'll be making it again a number of times during the summer months! A winner & a keeper! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

    In order to make this more portable, I assembled this differently than directed, but it was still absolutely fantastic. I used crumbled Gorgonzola, to which I added the parsley, shallot, and basil. I was tempted to add garlic, but decided to follow the recipe. I then diced all the tomatoes and mixed them in, followed by the dressing, and mixed again. It was wonderful and was a great addition to my brown bag lunch! Thanks for sharing.

    I didn't have the patience to chill the cheese, so just smooshed it all together. Tasted great! As DH said, what's not to like? made for Culinary Quest 2014
