Preparation

Step 1

Cut half of cherry tomatoes in half. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 4 minutes.

Add halved and whole tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to release juices, 4-6 minutes. Mash some of tomatoes with a spoon.

Add 1 tablespoon vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or room temperature; add chives just before serving.

DO AHEAD: Vinaigrette can be made (without chives) 2 days ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature and stir in chives.

Cooks' Notes:

• Marinate flank steak in a mixture of olive oil, cracked black pepper, and chopped garlic. Season steak with salt and grill. Slice, then serve with vinaigrette.

• Toss vinaigrette and a handful of crumbled feta with cooked pasta. Finish with more chopped chives.

• For a riff on ratatouille, grill or roast sliced zucchini, summer squash, onion, sweet red peppers, and eggplants until vegetables are soft. Toss together with vinaigrette.
