Ingredients

  • 2 Tomatoes I used 2 large beefsteak tomatoes for this recipe
  • ½ Red onion
  • ½ lb Prosciutto (sliced thin)
  • ½ cup Crumbled bleu cheese
  • ½ cup Candied walnuts

Sautéing Red Pepper

Sweet Balsamic Vinaigrette

Instructions

  • Slice your red peppers into thin strips and sauté them over medium heat in olive oil, a pinch of salt and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Flip them occasionally, and wait until you see the red pepper browning on the edges.  Remove it from heat and set aside.
  • Slice your tomatoes into thick slices aim to get 3-4 slices out a large tomato. 
  • Place thick slices of tomato into single layer on a plate/platter
  • Quickly sauté your prosciutto over medium heat. Just enough to warm the prosciutto and release it’s oils, so you get it’s heightened flavor.
  • Top each of your tomatoes with 1 to 1.5 slices of prosciutto folding it to fit on the tomato slice.  
  • Place sautéed red peppers around and layering them between and around the tomatoes and prosciutto.
  • Thinly slice your onion and place (about 3) onion ringlets to each of your tomato/prosciutto slices.
  • Add your crumbled bleu cheese and candied walnuts on top of the tomato, peppers, prosciutto and onion.
  • Drizzle your delicious sweet balsamic vinaigrette dressing (recipe included below) over top and serve!

Sweet Balsamic Dressing

  • Measure out ingredients listed, combine them and whisk together until blended. Stir up dressing prior to pouring as the balsamic and olive oil may separate.
