Mixed Cherry Tomato Salad
Cherry tomatoes are such fun to pop in your mouth. This easy and light salad gets a jolt of flavor from fresh basil, and it’s the perfect partner for heavier dishes such as cream-based pasta dishes and hearty casseroles.
Make it a meal kit: Make the salad and store in a sealable container or plastic bag for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.
Have it your way: You may use any variety and combination of tomatoes for this salad, including diced beefsteak, plum (Roma), yellow, or heirloom.
