We love cooking with cherry tomatoes–they’re sweeter than big beefsteaks or Cherokee Purple’s and not nearly as watery, so they stay intact when mixed into dishes. And sometimes you want that. They’re great (and pretty) in this bean salad and roasted over polenta. The polenta is a great vegetarian dish that plays well to other roasted vegetables too. Try adding roasted squash, eggplant or red peppers.
