I’m terrible with using the cherry tomatoes in my garden. Terrible. But I can’t resist planting them. I love having cherry tomatoes in my garden as I typically go out and eat them right off the vine when I’m weeding. Then once the regular tomatoes start producing the poor cherry tomatoes are forgotten and left behind. Please tell I’m not the only one to do that.
Well a couple weeks ago Kayla and I were in Decorah and stopped at Oneota Coop. It’s a very nice health food grocery that we both enjoy stopping by. In their taste testing case they had some cherry tomatoes that were sliced in half. The sign said, the ingredients were tomatoes, basil and salt. Hmm. I thought I’d give them a try. I loved it. Well how easy of a recipe is that??
So I went home and made some….
How simple but oh so tasty. Yep…no recipe.
I cut up the tomatoes and basil and sprinkled them generously with salt. It taste just like what we had at the store. With only three ingredients, I expected it to but still was pleasantly surprised.
The happy news….
I made a bigger batch and they were still good after being refrigerated overnight.
So…guess what I’ll be doing with my cherry tomatoes now? If you guessed making this, you are absolutely right.
Does anyone have suggestions for other things I could do with cherry tomatoes? I’d love some ideas…and if it’s simple like this, all the better.
