Grilled Tomatoes with Basil Vinaigrette

Grilled Tomatoes with Basil Vinaigrette

Makes 6 servings


3 yellow tomatoes

3 red tomatoes

3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Clean and preheat grill. You may also prepare this recipe indoors using a grill pan on the stove top. Soak skewers submerged in water for at least a half hour. Cut tomatoes in half; thread onto skewers, alternating colors. Brush with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium heat (300 F to 350 F) 10 minutes, turning skewers often. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, and basil; drizzle over kabobs. Garnish with fresh basil, chiffonade cut.
