Smoked Tomato Salad

This is a nice twist on the regular Italian tomato salad with a parmesan vinaigrette salad dressing. This recipe calls for an outdoor barbecue grill. However, to make it indoors, prepare salad as directed except do not grill or peel tomatoes. For a smoky flavor, add 1 to 2 drops liquid smoke to the Parmesan vinaigrette.
