Why You Should Grill Your Tomatoes
Get ready for tomato season!
Fresh summer tomatoes are fantastic for the grill—it warms them and amps up their already fantastic sweetness. From amazing salads to super-simple salmon kebabs, here are five reasons why you should definitely grill your tomatoes this season.
"If it were up to me, I would throw everything on the grill," says chef Tim Love, who cooks tomatoes and scallions over a hot fire for a simple salad flavored with a little lime juice and crumbled cheese.
This fantastic make-ahead dish features grilled tomatoes in olive oil with mint and red onions. It's wonderful with the crumbled feta over a bed of greens, alongside steak or simply with crusty bread.
Everyone loves a good, fresh Caprese salad, but we've got something even better. Chicago chef Stephanie Izard makes the ultimate summer salad with a creamy version of sweet-salty Japanese unagi sauce, which is typically brushed over eel. The flavors are so indescribable you must try it to actualize the deliciousness.
