We Have Enough Cherry Tomato Recipes to Last You All Summer
Tomatoes just might take the crown as king of fresh summer produce (sorry, okra!). Though big, juicy heirloom tomatoes get all the attention when it comes to your favorite tomato pie recipe, this summer we’re picking up new recipes using cherry tomatoes as well. Since they’re delicious raw, roasted, or sautéed, these tiny, colorful tomatoes are the ideal complement to any dish. Toss them on a salad, make a pasta sauce with them, stack them on a skewer with other veggies and grill them, you can even pickle them! These cherry tomato recipes prove how versatile these little guys are in the kitchen. If you don’t want to spend precious summer minutes sweating by the stovetop, try some of our favorite no-cook recipes with cherry tomatoes. Snack on Marinated Feta With Cherry Tomatoes with a glass of your favorite summer wine or throw together our Heirloom Tomato Salad with Herbs to go with any main dish you’ve got on the grill. Fresh cherry tomato sides like our Best-Ever Succotash and Street Corn Salad showcase the best the summer farmers’ market has to offer. Cherry tomatoes might be small, but they bring major flavor in hearty suppers like our Fusilli Pasta with Spinach, Tomato, and Bacon, Pork Chops with Tomato-Bacon Gravy, and Whole-Grain Panzanella.
