  • 2 tomatoes (about the size of plums) washed, dried, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 Maui onion, peeled and sliced very thinly
  • 10 large basil leaves, washed and dried
  • 2 teaspoons blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Alternating between the tomato and onion slices, arrange them on a round plate. Add a basil leaf after each onion slice, and then sprinkle the blue cheese over the top.
  2. Add the balsamic vinegar to a very small sauté pan and place it over medium-high heat. Cook until it thickens and reduces by about half.
  3. Drizzle the reduced balsamic and grind a bit of pepper over the tomatoes and onions and serve.
