Giving the tomato and red onion a bit of char on the grill transforms this simple salad into a fantastic summer side. The tomatoes become extra juicy as they soften and blister on the grill. The red onions become tender, sweet, and slightly smoky.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a grill pan over medium-high. Coat pan with cooking spray. Thread tomatoes onto 2 (8-inch) skewers. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over tomatoes and onion wedges; add to pan. Cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until tomatoes are blistered and onions are lightly charred.

Step 2

Remove tomatoes from skewers; place in a medium bowl. Add onion wedges, remaining 1 tablespoon oil, olives, and remaining ingredients; toss.
