Marinated Cherry Tomatoes
These little tomatoes make a wonderful appetizer, particularly before a meal. They are delicious, but they won't spoil anyone's appetite. Wonderful during the summer when locally grown cherry tomatoes are fresh and abundant, but also excellent made with the little grape tomatoes that are available year round.
- Place tomatoes in a wire basket or pasta basket and lower into boiling water for 1 minute. Remove from boiling water and dip immediately into cold water. Tomato skins will slip off easily.
- Make the marinade by combining all remaining ingredients in a non-reactive container. Add the tomatoes to the marinade, cover and refrigerate overnight.
Note: Since these little tomatoes are delicious, it's good that this recipe can be easily doubled.
