Summer Salads with a Cherry on Top
When it’s hot, we want salads. They’re cool and easily customizable with what you have on hand. Plus, they’re the perfect way to show off summer’s produce, like tomatoes. When you’re picking up some heirloom varieties, grab a basket or two of bite-size cherry tomatoes. They add a pop of color and flavorful sweetness wherever they appear.
JoAnn Hecht of A Seasonal Table Catering in Simi Valley combines two of our summertime faves with these cherry tomato–studded salads hearty enough to be main dishes. From here, we encourage you to explore roasted cherry tomatoes as a topping for fish or chicken, toss them into pasta or turn them into gazpacho.
