  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Serves: 6-8
  • Difficulty: 2/5
  • Cook time: 55 minutes


  • 12 ounces (340 grams) cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 large bunch asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2 zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 7 ounces (198 grams) Manouri cheese thick sliced
  • Arugula
  • Salt & pepper

For the Basil Oil
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • Salt & pepper
  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.


  1. Toss the cherry tomatoes with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Spread them onto a parchment lined baking sheet and place in a preheated MEDIUM-LOW 325°F (163°C) grill for 50 minutes, until semi-dried. Toss the zucchini and asparagus with 2-3 tablespoons olive oil. Grill until just tender and crisp. Let cool on a rack. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet. Fry the Manouri cheese for 3 minutes per side, until golden, cube. Drain on a paper-towel lined plate.
  2. Arrange the vegetables and cheese on a large platter and drizzle with some basil oil, to taste. Reserve remaining dressing for another time.
