Sometimes the simplest combination of ingredients can result in a dish where the result is completely a wow. I shared this Tomato, Egg, and Olive Salad with Gorgonzola Vinaigrette with my nephew Jake, and we both completely loved this combination of delicious summer flavors.The salad is simply fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced and layered with slices of boiled egg and olives, then drizzled with a vinaigrette that had bits of gorgonzola cheese. What could be simpler or more delicious? And when summer tomatoes are at the peak of ripeness, this is the perfect thing to eat on a hot summer day.

This gorgeous and delicious tomato salad is my Meatless Monday menu suggestion for this week. The recipe is low-carb, gluten-free, vegetarian, and can even be Paleo or Whole 30 approved if you switch out the gorgonzola vinaigrette for a dressing without cheese.
