ASAP!! Bloody Mary Salad

 This is my off day....
And on my off days I do nothing but sit around,
drink wine,
and eat the foods that I present to you on Mondays,
and Fridays....
And drinking wine is my favorite part.
Why do you think I'm partial to recipes that call for alcohol?
I had to get this recipe to you ASAP! 
So, that means I'm interrupting my wine drinking day.....
So, that means this recipe is pretty darn special.
 I bet if you search my blog you would find at least twelve
recipes that call for some kind of liquor.....
And I know what you're thinking.....
"I'm following an alcoholic." Right?
I would be thinking that if I were you.....
I found this recipe at Framed Cooks, and when I saw the title,
I started doing flips.
For real!
A Bloody Mary is one of my all time favorite drinks.
Don't forget, you're following an alcoholic.....
I also have to share with you the obsession I have with 
pretty plates and antiques.
I have it bad!
I sometimes go to a local antique store in my tiny little town
and walk around the store all day long.
That pretty bowl and glass salad tongs came from that store.
It's called The Green Awning Gallery.
And you can find their blog here.
Make sure you bookmark the blog because Kathy has some
awesomely amazing decorating ideas.
Oh, and I was telling you about a Bloody Mary Salad....
I'm not only an alcoholic,
antique freak,
but also a side tracked Sally.....(no offence to any Sally)
Bloody Mary Salad

4-6 ripe heirloom tomatoes, cut into wedges (I used garden tomatoes)
1 bunch of celery, cut into 2 inch sections. Include some of the leafy part!
1/8 cup capers (I used pimento stuffed green olives, sliced)
1/4 c. olive oil
3 TBS horseradish (I used finely minced onion)
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
2 TBS vodka
1 tsp. celery seeds
1/2 TBS Tabasco (or less if you like), (or more if you like)
Fresh ground black pepper and coarse salt

Gently combine tomatoes, celery and olives in a salad bowl.
Combine all remaining ingredients except for salt and pepper in a medium sized mixing bowl. Whisk together. Then add the salt and pepper to taste. 
Pour dressing over salad and mix gently. Garnish with a scattering of celery seeds if desired and serve.
