Cherry Tomato Salad

Last summer, I had a “Sweet 100” tomato plant that provided us with so many buckets of cherry tomatoes that we couldn’t even eat them all before the fruit flies ate them too and made them rot. Suffice it to say, we had this salad a lot last year!

This year, I didn’t purchase tomato plants in time. Not only were the Sweet 100s sold out, but it was late in the season by the time I even got my tomatoes in the ground. Unfortunately that means I haven’t eaten a single tomato from my own garden this year. I may not get any. 🙁

This salad is so good, though, that I had to go out and buy cherry tomatoes just so I could make it before the season ended. It’s quite simple, so you can easily whip it up without making dinner take too much time.
