1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil
3 bay leaves
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tomatoes, halved horizonally
Oil for greasing the pan

1. Preheat broiler.

2. Combine olive oil, vinegar, basil, garlic and salt in a casserole dish. Stir until well combined.

3. Place tomato halves cut-sides down directly on greased broiler pan. Broil until they start to char and blister, about 4 minutes. Using tongs or a spatula and spoon, carefully turn tomatoes over and broil 2 minutes more.

4. Remove cooked tomatoes from heat and place cut-sides up in the dish with oil and vinegar mixture. Spoon some of the mixture over the tomatoes. Set aside to marinate at least 1 hour, or cover and refrigerate up to 5 days. Serve at room temperature.

Serves 6.
