Tomatoes, artichoke hearts and olives mingle inside tightly-wrapped foil packs, then get topped with tiny pearls of mozzarella, fresh basil and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar for what just might be the easiest side of summer.
Updated May 11, 2017

Ingredients

  • 1 jar (6 oz) Progresso™ marinated artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons pitted kalamata olives, halved
  • 2 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 cup pearl-sized (1/2-inch) mozzarella cheese balls (from 8-oz package)
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • Balsamic vinegar, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix artichoke hearts, bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, olives, garlic, capers, honey and red pepper flakes. Divide evenly among sheets of foil.
  • 3
    Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 4
    Place packs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 minutes. Rotate packs 1/2 turn; cook 4 to 6 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Remove packs from grill; cut large X across top of each pack. Carefully fold back foil, and garnish with mozzarella and basil. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  • 5
    To make in oven, place packs on cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Carefully fold back foil, and garnish with mozzarella and basil. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    These foil packs also make a great appetizer. Just throw some sliced ciabatta or baguette on the grill beside them for fun do-it-yourself bruschetta.
  • tip 2
    For the prettiest presentation, cut tomatoes in half through the stem so it’s less noticeable.
