My two favorite things to do with Cherry Tomatoes are throw them in a baking dish with some EVOO, salt and pepper and grill or roast. Or just keep them on the dining table (all washed and cleaned), still on their vines as a centerpiece.
After the pretty cherry (or grape) tomatoes had spent some adequate time pepping up my dining table while simultaneously being popped in for some in-between-meal snack, I decided to make use of them for my dinner of chicken cutlets and a smoked salmon cream cheese-avocado sandwich.
They say true luxury should be rare, authentic and special. I think so too, and that’s why I use cherry tomatoes to decorate, make little hors d'oeuvre by either stuffing them with fresh “mozz”, tossing them in salads or just pricking them on fruit picks with some complementary fruits (like grapes and olives) and some cheese.
These are the roasted cherry tomatoes I served with my dinner last night. About 300 grams of plump cherry tomatoes on the vine, drizzled lavishly with the best extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with some freshly cracked pepper and salt.
