In this tasty pick-up-and-eat appetizer, a light and crisp phyllo-dough shell surrounds juicy slices of ripe tomato. Scattered on top are temptingly salty Kalamata olives and freshly grated Parmesan cheese, while ever-so-thinly sliced onion adds another great layer of flavor, color, and texture. All you have to do to make the tart crust is layer the phyllo sheets on top of each other, spraying each with some cooking spray and folding the edges in to create a border. It doesn't get much simpler than that, and we love using phyllo to cut down on prep time. For even more added convenience, you can serve this tart hot, warm, or at room temperature.

Ingredients

plum tomato(es)

5 large, red, yellow, or a combination, cut into 1/4-inch slices

uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, very thinly sliced

olive(s)

16 medium, Kalamata variety, pitted, quartered

table salt

½ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp

phyllo dough

8 sheet(s), (12 x 17 -inch) frozen, thawed

grated Parmesan cheese

½ cup(s)

olive oil cooking spray

9 spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Set oven rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Meanwhile, place tomato slices between double thickness of paper towels and pat dry. Let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Toss together onion, olives, salt, and pepper in small bowl.
  4. Lay 1 phyllo sheet on large baking sheet and lightly spray with olive oil nonstick spray. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with damp kitchen towel and plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out.) Repeat layering with remaining 7 sheets of phyllo, spraying each sheet with nonstick spray. Roll edges of phyllo in to form rim.
  5. Arrange tomato slices on phyllo in single overlapping layer. Top with onion mixture and lightly spray with nonstick spray. Bake until bottom and edges of phyllo are golden and tomatoes and onion are softened, about 25 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Cut tart into 12 equal pieces.
  6. Per serving: 1 piece
