5-8 ripe tomatoes
Juice of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons olive brine
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons mild – medium hot sauce
For best results, complete the base at least two hours before serving or the night before to allow flavors to combine and mixture to chill thoroughly.
First, core the tomatoes and slice in half. Lightly season the flesh side of the halves with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Place seasoned side down on a hot grill until charred (about 2-to-3 minutes). For an authentic, smoky flavor, use Cowboy All Natural Hardwood Lump Charcoal in your grill. Once tomatoes are cooked, set aside to cool for 1 minute.
Once cool, place tomatoes and above listed ingredients in a large blender and blend until smooth. Blending may need to occur in batches. Once blended, pour the mixture into covered containers and refrigerate until ready to serve. For a sweeter version, roast fresh strawberries on the grill and add to blended mixture.
