Tomatoes, blue cheese, and red onion

Today will be busy.  Our son Matt arrives tomorrow morning from San Francisco, so the corned beef for sandwiches is simmering along with the beef and beef shank for Pam's Slop soup. We have to get the 5 turkeys out to the garage to start thawing...and a lot of shopping must be done for Thursday.  So today I'm offering a little salad we have year round (even when the tomatoes aren't that good). Just slice a couple of tomatoes, top with thinly sliced red onion, crumbled blue cheese, and black olives.  Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and grind a little black pepper on it all.  A quick and easy side for a busy day.
