When tomatoes get a solid dose of blistering heat, they weep sweet juices that are oh-so flavorful. Pair this side dish recipe with your favorite grilled chicken recipe.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a wide, shallow bowl, combine the olive oil and next 5 ingredients (through pepper).

Step 2

Add tomatoes, and turn to coat them on all sides.

Step 3

Prepare grill.

Step 4

Place tomatoes, cut sides down, on the grill rack. Brush once with remaining marinade, and then discard marinade. Grill about 5-7 minutes on each side over medium-high heat or until tomatoes begin to blister, soften, and brown. (They can burn easily, so keep an eye on them.)

Step 5

Remove the tomatoes from grill, and top with Parmesan cheese, if desired, and parsley. Serve immediately.
