Charred Tomato Relish made with Cherry Tomatoes: Method

  1. Preheat grill to 375-400 degrees.
  2. Drain tomatoes. In a bowl, drizzle olive oil over the tomatoes, the whole red pepper, and the shallots making sure they are completely coated. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill the veggies for 3-5 minutes on each side. (You may need to use a grill pan for the tomatoes.) Remove from heat just as the tomatoes start to burst.
  4. Place the pepper in a covered bowl to cool for about 3 minutes. This will make it easier to remove the skin.
  5. Once cooled, dice the skinned pepper and shallots.
  6. Combine the tomatoes, pepper, shallots, basil, and vinegar in a bowl. Season with salt, and use liberally to top grilled meat or other proteins.
