Bloody Mary Salad

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ C. sliced, pitted green olives
  • ½ C. salami
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced (save the leaves for garnish)
  • 1 T. vodka
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tsp. Parker’s Hangover Tonic
  • Juice and zest of one large lemon
  • Pinch of celery salt
  • 4 oz. of Blue cheese
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper to taste

In medium bowl, combine everything but the blue cheese. Stir to make sure tomatoes are thoroughly covered. Cover and allow to marinate for 1 hour. To serve, slice or crumble blue cheese on a platter. Top the cheese with the tomato mixture and drizzle any remaining liquid. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Variation:  don’t marinate the olives, salami, or celery….add those to the top of the salad when serving.
