Grilled Tomatoes Tapenade

Grilled Tomatoes TapenadeMy friend Kyle made these skewers for us one evening and we all loved them. This recipe comes from Myrecipes.com 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.

  1. If I make this in the oven or even if it is on an inside grill, do I need to wet the skewers first? Thank you in advance for your reply

    1. Tammy,

      It’s a good idea to water down the skewer sticks before grilling so they don’t burn.
