Grilled Onion, Tomato & Goat Cheese SaladIris flourish

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4 servings




red onion



pint cherry or grape tomatoes



cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus 2 T



T organic red wine vinegar



T fresh basil, chopped



cup crumbled goat cheese



cup pine nuts, toasted

wooden skewers

freshly ground pepper

sea salt


  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes. In the meantime, light the coals or preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. Quarter the onion and separate into double-thick wedges. Thread onions and tomatoes onto separate skewers (all tomatoes and all onions) and brush with 2 T olive oil.
  3. Place skewers on grill and turn several times, until tomatoes are hot and charred (they will “pop” when done—about 5 minutes). Remove tomatoes from grill and place cover on grill. Continue grilling the onions until tender—about another 5 minutes.
  4. Remove tomatoes and onions from skewers and toss with remaining olive oil, vinegar, and basil in a large serving bowl. Top with goat cheese and pine nuts; add salt and pepper to taste.
