1.To peel and seed the tomato, cut a shallow cross on the smooth end of tomato. Drop into boiling water for 10 seconds, drain and place in iced water for 1 minute. Peel the skin from the tomato, cut into quarters, discard the seeds and core, then chop the flesh finely.
2.Cook asparagus on a heated, lightly oiled grill plate (or grill or barbecue) for about 5 minutes or until tender.
3.Serve drizzled with the combined oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and tomato; sprinkle with basil leaves.

The dressing can be made several days ahead. The asparagus can be served hot or at room temperature.
