Combine Dijon mustard and vinegar in a small mixing bowl and mix well.  Slowly whisk in half the oil in a steady stream until incorporated. (you can use a food processor or blender and slowly add oil as it’s blending) Add basil, honey and mix.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. 


Cut and core roma tomatoes.  Rub with oil, salt, pepper, and chopped garlic.  Place on hot grill and cook until soft or 140 degrees.  You can also grill these in a sauté pan or roast them in the oven.  Dice the tomatoes ¼” and add to the vinaigrette.  Stir well and refrigerate.
