Napa Rose’s Glorious Tomatoes: the Bake-It-Yourself Disney Recipe

By Melissa L.

Disneyland Resort is home to some great dining experiences.  One of the signature restaurants here can be found in the Grand Californian Hotel.  Nape Rose is a Disneyland fan favorite, I recreated an appetizer I have never had or seen from the menu here!  Napa Rose’s Glorious Tomatoes recipe can not be found online so I urge any interested readers to pick up my favorite Disney cookbook where you can find the recipe for the Cider Vinaigrette used the in recipe below.


  • 1 heirloom tomato per person being served (recipe assumes 4)
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup basil leaves, torn into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup Cider Vinaigrette
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 3 slices applewood smoked bacon
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives


  • Slices tomatoes thickly and sprinkle with salt, basil, cider dressing, onions, and bacon (the tomato slices will look like little pizzas)
  • Stack tomatoes 3-4 layers high, sprinkle with blue cheese
  • Garnish with remaining bacon, cheese, chives
  • Drizzle any remaining smaller pieces with basil, salt, pepper, vinaigrette, and scatter around tomato stacks

Thanks for stopping by for a make-it-yourself Disney recipe, and we hope you enjoy it!
