INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat or a grill pan over medium-high heat.

Core and cut into large flat-sided pieces plum tomatoes and the red bell pepper. Lightly oil the grill grates or pan, add the vegetables and cook until charred, about 5 minutes.

Transfer the grilled vegetables to a food processor with cucumbers, cut into chunks. Add shallot, parsley leaves, garlic clove and red wine vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and pulse to finely chop and blend. Serve with crusty bread.
