Grilled Tomatoes Tapenade

My friend Kyle made these skewers for us one evening and we all loved them. This recipe comes from courtesy of Coastal Living. The tomatoes have such a wonderful and sweet flavor when grilled while the white balsamic and kalamata olive vinaigrette is tangy and so flavorful. I look forward to making this recipe again and again.

    YUM – this looks so delicious! With all of the Summer Produce and tomatoes that are just starting to pile up, I can’t wait to enjoy this a few more times over the next few weeks. :-)
