Terri’s Cherry Tomato Salad

When it comes to tomatoes, Backyard Bounty Co-op is all about diversity–between Terri Gillingham, Nina Kerr-Brant, Mary Siebert, and occassional other tomato contributors our tomato display sported winners of all shapes, sizes, colors, and varieties. Terri’s mixed cherry tomatoes were a favorite at the market this past month and they make a very colorful version of this simple but delicious cherry tomato salad.


2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ cup red onion, cut into slivers
¼ cup basil, finely minced
Black pepper to taste
Minced garlic or garlic powder, optional


Mix all ingredients for dressing and pour over tomatoes. Chill for 1 hour and serve.

Other possible additions include: shredded fresh beets, carrots, or kohlrabi; garbanzo beans
