Grilled Tomatoes With Pesto

This will make a great side dish for chicken or a quick appetizer while conversing with friends.


To serve 6, you will need:

  • 3 medium, firm and cored tomatoes, cut in half crosswise
  • 1/4 cup pesto (homemade or purchased)
  • 6 super thin sliced onion slices
  • 1/2 cup Havarti cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup smoked almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbsp. chopped Italian parsley

With a spoon, scoop out 1/4 inch of the tomato halves. Top each tomato half with 2 tsp. of the pesto sauce and an onion slice. Arrange on foil pie plates.

On the barbecue at a medium-high temperature, place plans on the grill and close the cover for about 8 mins. just until they are heated through but not mushy.

In a small bowl, mix together the almonds, cheese and parsley. Sprinkle the mixture over the tomatoes and grill for about 5 more minutes until the cheese has melted.
