Cut the bottoms off of the cherry tomatoes to stand them up straight. Next, carve out the core at the top.
Next, season the open part of the tomato with salt and pepper and add a chunk of bleu cheese to the top. Add 2 chives and 1 leaf of basil lettuce in between the cheese and tomato and serve along side the reduced balsamic vinegar.
