Grilled Heirloom Tomatoes

Tomato season is short and sweet in Texas. Heirloom Tomatoes picked at their ripest moment can very much resemble the taste of melon or stone fruit. Tomatoes are ripest in Texas June and July. Much like grapes tomatoes love when they are deprived of water and nutrients when they are on the vine. It creates the perfect bite when they have had to struggle a little bit. There is no better way to enjoy summer tomatoes than plain and simple straight on the grill.

1 Lb. Heirloom Tomatoes

1/3 C EVOO (Basil, Garlic, Tuscan Herb)

1 small Block of Feta Cheese


1 Baguette

12 Skewers

salt

 

First soak your skewer in water to prevent them from burning on the grill. Next rinse and clean your tomatoes. Cut each tomato into wedges, as if you were cutting a lime.  Stick two to three tomato wedges on each skewer. After you have finished, brush all sides of the wedges with olive oil and sprinkle a pinch of salt  over each one. Place on a hot girl and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side or until there are grill marks on the side. Brush the grill with olive oil to prevent sticking. Next cube your feta cheese and place in a small mixing bowl drizzle a little olive oil over the top with some fresh herbs and mix and serve along side the tomatoes. Brush thin slices of baguette with olive oil and grill to serve along side this dish.
