Nothing says summer like a fresh, garden tomato.  The only problem is (and its a good problem) that all those darn tomatoes come at once.  I am constantly in search of ways to use my tomatoes.  Well, I have to thank my mother for this one.  Grilled tomatoes are so simple to make, they cook fast, and there is virtually no cleanup.  Next time you are cooking some chicken, steak, or even burgers on the grill, be sure to whip up a batch of these tasty tomatoes.

Not only will these taste good, but a grilled tomato makes a healthy side dish.  Why not cut down those carbohydrates and increase those yummy vegetables.  I promise if you make one of these, you may never bake a potato ever again.
