When it is not too hot outside, we love to eat outside and these tomatoes would be great for an outdoor meal.

If you haven't tried grilled tomatoes, I highly recommend doing so. My husband who is not a big fan of grilled tomatoes (what a weirdo...) or fresh basil loved this recipe. So did my 10 month old baby girl! I gave her pieces of the cooked tomato without the skin and she ate it all up.
