    Wife and I like - scratch that the whole family - likes to hit a dive in Minneapolis calleb the 5-8 Club. Excellent "Juicy Lucy's".
    We absolutely love this salad.
    They won't give up the recipe, but the brother knows his way around the kitchen so I made up my own version. If it's not 100% it's darn close to what they make.

    5-8 Club Tomato and Onion Salad

    4 Vine Ripened Tomatoes
    1 Sweet Onion
    Ranch Dressing
    Bleu Cheese Crumbles, Bib Lettuce Garnish


    Lightly Cut an X in the bottom of the tomato ONLY cutting the skin.
    Blanched Tomatoes ( shocked, Iced, Dried, refrige, skinned, then sliced)
    ONLY BLANCH TOMATOES FOR 30 SECONDS !!!!! SHOCK, CHILL, DRY

    1 Sweet Onion, Sliced into rounds and layered tween Tomato “pattiesâ€
    Topped with a decent drizzle of French Dressing
    Crumbles of Bleu Cheese on top
    Garnish with baby bib lettuce on the side

    FANTASTIC !
    Sweet onions are Walla Walla, Vidalia, Maui, Texas Sweet, OSO Sweet, Sweet Imperial

    You know, it'd probably be real good with Red Onion as well.
    I'll take a pic next time and see if I can figgur out Qview.
    You'll enjoy this one.
