Smoked Tomato Salad Recipe

Smoked Tomato Salad

Serves 4

Smoked tomatoes and buttery Marcona almonds make this simple salad anything but ordinary!


  • 1 cup wood chips, soaked
  • 4 Roma tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 5 ounces arugula
  • Flaky finishing salt
  • 1/3 cup Marcona almonds
  • 1/3 cup feta or goat cheese crumbles


  1. Place wood chips in the center of a sheet of aluminum foil. Fold up edges to create a rim and keep wood chips from falling out. Place directly over low heat on one side of grill.
  2. Slice tomatoes in half lengthwise. Whisk oil and vinegar together. Brush onto both sides of tomatoes. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Reserve remaining oil and vinegar for dressing.
  3. By now, the wood chips should be smoking. Turn the other side of the grill up to medium heat. Once hot, place tomatoes cut side down. Cook 2 minutes with grill lid closed. Flip and cook an additional 2 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside.
  4. Toss arugula with remaining oil and vinegar mixture. Season with flaky salt and pepper. Top with grilled tomatoes, Marcona almonds, and cheese crumbles.
