Grilled Tomatoes

DSC_0234

Sometimes you need to take your veggies to a whole new level and this is the way to do it.  Tomatoes are coming into season here in Albania and there is nothing better than fresh ripe tomatoes.  I can eat them as is but sometimes it is nice to dress them up a bit to make them a more complete side dish.  These tomatoes can be prepared in a matter of minutes and make a nice accompaniment to grilled steak or chicken.  If you don’t have a grill you can cook the tomatoes under a broiler in your oven.

GRILLED TOMATOES

4 large ripe tomatoes, cut into quarters

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar (optional)

  • Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
  • Drizzle the tomatoes with the olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place the tomatoes on the grill and cook for 1-2 minutes per side.  Cook until they are hot.
  • Drizzle with balsamic vinegar if desired.
  • Serve immediately.
