Heirloom Tomato Salad with Pistachio Vinaigrette
Oh how I love summer!! One of my favorite foods are tomatoes- gotta love a nice big red juicy gem. This seasonal sunday we are exploring a recipe that calls for some lovely tomatoes so run out to your garden and start harvesting!! I was so excited when I saw my little guys starting to blush in the sun this week, nom nom nom. We also are going to make a gorgeous and tasty pistachio vinaigrette to top on those rubies you picked!!
Place all items in food processor for a creamy thicker dressing. If you prefer a more runny dressing simply give all herbs/pistachios/onion a good chop and whisk all ingredients together. Once you have chopped your basil, tomatoes and cheese simply add about two tablespoons of dressing and mix thoroughly.
