Grilled Parmesan Tomatoes

This week on my Patch colum,"Cooking with Chelsea" I'm featuring Grilled Parmesan Tomatoes. A quick and easy side dish that is filled with delicious flavor.  Made with only a few simple ingredients, this dish is the epitome of fresh.

If you're lucky enough to have a green thumb and able to grow tomatoes and herbs in your garden, this item can be made any time.  I have yet to develop my green thumb... I have a hard enough time remembering to water my potted plants.  Regardless of where your ingredients come from, this dish is light, fresh and satisfying.

I've also included a list of grilling tips to make a perfectly grilled steak for your dad on Father's Day!  With these grilling pointers, you're qualified to handle the grill and give dad a well deserved day off! 

Grilled steaks and Grilled Parmesan Tomatoes are a perfect meal you're dad is sure to enjoy!  Click here to view this recipe and tips on Patch.



  1. looks beautiful Chelsea! always :)

  2. Lovely accompaniment for a grill night!

  3. These would be great as a vegetarian main! Chuck em on some quinoa and you're laughin!

    A note on watering plants: I also, cannot for the life of me, keep in-door plants alive. Vegetable plants on the other hand, I'm more motivated to care for. Not only do they give back (incentive), but it's awfully rewarding to see them grow and develop fruit. love it!

  4. Anything is better on the grill in the summer :) I love the idea of serving this with quinoa :)

  5. Like Kristy said, I will kill anything in a pot, but I can throw a tomato plant in the ground - neglect the heck out of it - and still get tomatoes!

    These look great!
