Pan GRILLED Tomato Salad | Healthy & Refreshing 10 Minute Recipe

This Pan Grilled Tomato Salad is light & refreshing, packed with flavors and all done in about 10 minutes. Serve it as a starter or even as a side dish. It works great next to some grilled fish and roasted potatoes.

Pan GRILLED Tomato Salad
What makes this tomato salad stand out above the rest, is that the tomatoes are lightly pan grilled. This gives them an incredible texture and a beautiful depth of flavors. Important to use a nonstick pan when grilling the tomatoes, that way they don´t stick to the surface.

Pan GRILLED Tomato Salad
What really flavors this dish is the homemade vinaigrette. Made with olive oil, sherry vinegar, cucumber, red onion and parsley. The combination of these ingredients perfectly combine with the grilled tomatoes for the ultimate balance of goodness.

Pan GRILLED Tomato Salad

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: I brushed the tomatoes with a kiss of garlic infused olive oil before grilling. This not only helps the tomatoes to not stick to the pan, but gives them a delicious garlic flavor. I used heirloom tomatoes, but you can use any tomatoes you like.
