Looking for Ways to Use Tomatoes?

As I head into the dogs days of summer, I continue to search for ways to beat the heat and not use the kitchen.  In recent posts, I have talked about grilling mangos and how wonderful they taste – like Krispy Kreme donuts, and grilling peaches – so delicious with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.  I have also recently shown how to grill romaine lettuce for a salad; the contrast between the hot layer and the ice cold inside of the lettuce is wonderful.  So today, I got the bright idea to try grill tomatoes.

I sliced a nice ripe tomato into about 1/2 inch thick slices and placed the slices on a hot grill.  Flip them over after about 3 minutes and grill another few minutes.  Remove from the grill, drizzle with balsamic vinegar, sprinkle a little grated parmesan cheese and top with some fresh basil, sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper.   You could change this up by deleting the parmesan cheese and adding blue cheese or fresh mozzarella cheese.  Classic!!

Delicious and so easy to make.  Plus with all the tomatoes that are coming in at the farmers markets, you will need another way to use them up!
