This recipe for Cedar planked cherry tomatoes with olive oil and herbs is one of my favorite recipes we’ve done. It not only has a beautiful presentation, it also just plain tastes delicious! We decided to serve them with baguette (tossed on the grill for a couple minutes for those beautiful grill marks and extra crispy-ness) and ricotta cheese.

Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 5 x 11” Cedar Plank
  • 2 pints Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 clove Garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbs. Fresh Herbs, chopped (I like thyme, chives and basil)
  • 2 Tbs. Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbs. Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Toasted Baguette
  • Herbed Ricotta

Chef's Tip

It is important to pre-grill
your plank so that it starts
to cup. This little trick helps
keep those round tomatoes
from rolling off the plank.


  1. Soak Cedar Plank in water for 1 hour, keeping it immersed.
  2. Preheat grill to 400°F.
  3. Toss tomatoes with remaining ingredients.
  4. Place wet plank on grill, close lid and heat for 5 minutes. The plank will start to cup.
  5. Flip plank over and carefully add tomatoes.
  6. Close lid and grill for 15 minutes.
  7. Keep a spray bottle of water handy for flare-ups.
  8. Serve with toasted bread and an herbed ricotta cheese.
  9. Enjoy!
