In our July issue, we shared a quick tip to make you look like the master of the grill with a simple recipe for homemade BBQ sauce. Since we're at the peak of summer grilling season, we'd like to share an amazing recipe for grilling tomatoes like a pro.
Grilled Tomato "Lollipops"
This is such a great recipe that has much versatility. You can use these grilled tomatoes as an appetizer, as a side dish, in salads or just on a toasted piece of artisan bread with cream cheese.
You'll need a few dozen of your favourite brand of cherry tomatoes, some wood skewers, about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper.
Toss the tomatoes with the olive oil and seasoning. Leave the stems on the tomatoes if they have them. Put 5 - 6 tomatoes on each skewer leaving a little bit of space between each.
Grill over high heat, turning occasionally, until the tomatoes are charred and blistered, which should take about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Bon appetit!
