Grilled Heirloom Tomato Vinaigrette

In addition to this week’s salad, this bright dressing is wonderful tossed with pasta, or drizzled over steamed or grilled artichokes.

Ingredients:
1-2 heirloom tomatoes, halved and seeded
2 garlic cloves, peeled
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon fresh parsley
½ cup olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill tomato halves until soft and slightly charred, beginning flesh side down, and flipping over halfway through cooking so both sides have grill marks. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

2. In a food processor or blender, combine tomatoes, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice and herbs and process until smooth. Check for seasoning and season liberally with salt and pepper.

3. Then, with processor running, slowly add olive oil and process until well blended. Set aside until ready to use.
