Yield

Makes 6 to 8 servings

Mix and match colorful assorted tomatoes, such as 'Beefsteak,' 'Brandywine,' and 'Cherokee Purple.' Their rich, meaty flavor counters the dressing's tang and zip. Don't overlook the tender inside leaves of the celery bunch--they're quite delicious, and they add an herbal note to the dish.

How to Make It

  1. Arrange tomatoes and sliced celery on a large chilled platter. Sprinkle with table salt and black pepper to taste. Drizzle with desired amount of Bloody Mary Vinaigrette. Spoon Quick Pickled Shrimp over tomatoes. Top with celery leaves. Serve immediately with remaining vinaigrette.
