Tomatoes With Blue Cheese Salad

Tomato Salad

Recipe courtesy Paula Deen

This is a fantastic light and healthy salad recipe from one of my favorites, Paula Deen. Great for a BBQ, picknic or Sunday dinner. I especially like the salad dressing and make a double batch and refridgerate the unused dressing for up to a week.
