I once made these at a dinner party and they unexpectedly were the best dish of the entire meal!! These skewers are perfect for summertime grilling (especially for vegans and vegetarians), served on top of a salad or just as a side.
Serves: 4 Time: 45 minutes
- 24 cherry tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
- 1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
- Fresh ground pepper to taste
- 4 to 6 wooden skewers soaked in water for 30 minutes (or metal skewers)
Directions: To make cherry tomato skewers, in a large bowl whisk together the oil, vinegar, minced garlic and thyme in a medium bowl. Add the tomatoes and toss to coat. Let tomatoes sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to marinate. Heat the grill (or a grill pan) to high. Remove the tomatoes from the marinade and skewer 6 cherry tomatoes per skewer. Season on both sides with salt and pepper and grill until golden brown and slightly charred on both sides, about 6 minutes (depending on how hot your barbecue is). Serve!
