"If it were up to me, I would throw everything on the grill," says Tim Love. Case in point: He cooks tomatoes and scallions over a hot fire for a simple salad flavored with a little lime juice and crumbled cheese. Plus: F&W's Grilling Guide


  • 8 tomatoes, cored and cut into 6 wedges (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • 2 bunches scallions
  • Canola oil, for rubbing
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups crumbled cotija or ricotta salata cheese (about 4 ounces)


Light a grill. Rub the tomatoes and scallions with canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the tomatoes and scallions over high heat, turning once, until they're blistered, 1 minute per side; transfer to a platter. Drizzle the salad with the lime juice and olive oil, sprinkle with the cheese and serve.
