Tomatoe dish from after party

Roasted Grape Tomatoes

2 pt's grape tomatoes, you can use cherry but more juicy
1/4 c EVO
1 head of garlic, crushed
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup chopped FRESH basil

mix evo and garlic and let sit for at least 30 minutes to infuse the flavor. I mix it right in a 10 or 12 inch cast iron pan and then add the tomatoes. cook at 350 - 375 until the tomatoes start to burst. When about half popped remove and let cool slightly, about 10 to 15 minutes.
While they are cooling chop the basil leaves and toss with the crumbled feta.
add to the tomatoes and stir very gently.
At the after party I served with sliced baguette. our favorite is fresh focaccia bread or pita bread. but even crackers are good!
You can turn this into a great side dish by adding a cup or two of fresh cooked couscous or any very small pasta. great hot or cold. if you are doing cold, cook the tomatoes and let cool and then refrigerate at that point. Just before serving add the basil, cheese and pasta and toss lightly
the basket as we headed to the after party.. the jug is full of 'ritas. or it was when we started prepping the tomatoes LOL we had to have a couple
from dinner a while back mixed with the couscous. I sliced some of the garlic and crushed some in this dish.

    ha ha actually there were two HUGE wonderful tossed salads that Bill made and they were cleaned right out empty! :laugh: see what happens when important people are missing... no jello shots to feed steven... my feet were dry and cracked... no evo for them.... sad sad night .....

    if I am using the couscous in this I just cook in boiling water just like a pasta :) drain and toss with a tiny bit of EVO to keep from sticking if you are going with the cold version. you do not want much as there is oil in the tomatoes.

    Thanks for the salad, it was a nice balance to all the meat I was grilling. ;) Was wondering if anyone got a shot of the little girls making somemores on my egg?, I would like a pic of that. I was drinkin (sippin) Scotch, single malt,..._ so that's my excuse why I missed it. :whistle: :blink:
