Garden Tomatoes with Cilantro Pesto

Garden Tomatoes with Cilantro PestoI wanted a light salad for my Foodbuzz 24x24 dinner, A Gathering of Girlfriends, and this salad was perfect. The tomatoes came from my in-laws garden, they have so many varieties, which made this salad amazing. I think this was the last batch from there garden for the summer, which makes me quite sad.  The cilantro pesto recipe is adapted from Bobby Flay, but it would be delicious on a multitude of things, not just tomatoes.
Garden Tomatoes with Cilantro Pesto

2 cups chopped cilantro leaves, plus ¼ cup chopped cilantro, for garnish
2 cloves garlic, chopped
¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ cup grated Cojita cheese
6 large tomatoes, sliced

Place cilantro and garlic in a food processor and process until coarsely chopped. With the motor running, add the oil and process until smooth. Add the cheese and process until incorporated. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve over sliced tomatoes.
