Tasty! The only changes I made were minor. I added about 2 tablespoons fresh basil (basil and tomatoes are a match made in heaven!), used garlic powder in place of garlic salt, and used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I will be making this often, this summer. Great way to use your summer bounty with all your grilled dinners. Thank you for posting this here - you saved me the trouble! :)

I love these tomatoes. I got this recipe off the Food Network site and make them often. I just use store bought vine-ripe tomatoes. Fresh parsley and thyme from my garden gives them a wonderful flavor. A great dish for summer cook-outs because you can make them ahead. Thanks for posting!

I've made these twice and they are so good. The marinade even makes store-bought tomatoes taste good. Great side dish for a BBQ
