Grilled Peppered Tomatoes with Lemon and Garlic
This dish is a prime example that really good produce needs very little done to it to create a great-tasting dish. Since the quality of the dish depends entirely on the quality of the tomatoes, make sure you use vine-ripened ones.
4 vine-ripened tomatoes
1/4 cup freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, about 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, basil, or mixture of both
2 teaspoons minced garlic
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
6 dashes Tabasco sauce
- Stem the tomatoes and cut them into quarters. Sprinkle them with pepper and grill over a hot fire for about 2 minutes, turning occasionally, or until they are lightly browned.
- Remove the tomatoes from the grill and place them in a bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients, toss gently, and serve.
