In a large container add all ingredients except the oils and blend until smooth using a hand blender. Slowly drizzle oil while blending to emulsify into a vinaigrette.

Slice each of the tomatoes in any shape desired and set aside. Take desired plate and arrange the tomatoes in a uniform line trying to mix the colors of the tomatoes.
