June's Grilled Tomatoes with Yogurt

Greek or Middle Eastern yogurt is preferred for this recipe, brought to us by health and fitness specialist June Lay, but plain, full-fat yogurt is a good substitute.

  • Servings: 4

Source: Martha Stewart Living, September 1996


  • 4 ripe, red tomatoes (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for grill
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, preferably Greek or Middle Eastern


  1. Cut 1/2 inch off top of tomatoes. Sprinkle cut end of tomatoes with oregano, thyme, lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper.

  2. Brush a grill or grill pan with oil. Heat to hot. Place tomatoes on the grill, cut side down. Grill until slightly charred, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and grill until soft and warm throughout, 3 to 5 minutes more. Transfer to a dish, and serve with yogurt on the side.
