Recipe Ingredients for Grilled Tomatoes

4 tomatoes
3 tablespoons olive oil

Recipe Directions for Grilled Tomatoes

  1. Heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat (you can hold your hand about an inch above the grill for 3 to 4 seconds).

  2. Cut tomatoes in half crosswise (along the ?equator?). Lay cut-side-up on a large baking sheet or tray. Brush cut side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Lay oiled-side-down on the grill. Close lid if using a gas grill and cook until grill marks appear, about 5 minutes.

  3. Brush other sides with oil and sprinkle with salt. Turn over, close lid on a gas grill and cook until grill marks appear on the other side, about 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
