Herbed Cherry Tomatoes

 Herbed Cherry Tomatoes
Meet the Cook: My recipe's a good one for when you want a little fancier salad dish but one that's still quick to fix. I find it's especially popular served with grilled steak, baked potatoes and corn on the cob. I came across Herbed Cherry Tomatoes when I was a new bride searching for interesting ways that I could cook for my husband. Jerry and I now have a pair of daughters, ages 16 and 10.
