Love grape tomatoes? Or just have too many tomatoes on your hands? Here are 15 cherry tomato recipes that are bursting with fresh tomato flavor!
You go to the grocery store or farmer’s market, ready to stock up on fresh vegetables. You have so many ideas and recipes you’d like to create in the next week. But, as happens with life, you wind up too busy to cook, instead opting to order a few dinners from your favorite takeout place.
Before you know it, your veggies are starting wilt, and the likelihood of eating them is getting slimmer with each day. The good news, however, is that cherry tomatoes, like other types of tomatoes, tend to last a bit longer than other veggies. Their lifespan is usually a couple of weeks, whereas those cucumbers and peppers need to be eaten days sooner.
So for when you have too many tomatoes on your hands, here are 15 delicious cherry tomatoes recipe! Whether you’re in the mood for zucchini caprese salad, something with romesco sauce, or even your own personalized pizza, there’s something to cook up here.
