8 plum tomatoes, halved lengthways
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
75g Greek olives, pitted
For the basil dressing
5 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 good tsp Dijon mustard
Handful of fresh basil leaves – reserve 2 or 3 for garnish
Make the basil dressing using a stick blender or a food processor, to whizz the ingredients together.
Place the halved tomatoes in a roasting tin, cut side uppermost.
Scatter with the garlic and drizzle with half the basil dressing.
Place the tomatoes in a pre heated oven 180c / gas mark 4 for 10-15 minutes. Take care not to let them get too soft.
Serve the tomatoes on a platter or individually and scatter with the halved olives and extra dressing.
Garnish with the reserved basil leaves.
