The Cherry tomato named after another fruit because of its resemblance or similarity, it looks fairly cute when ripe, round, and seems to be what I call 'petite', but its taste is absolutely contrary to its size. It bears a very great flavor that is perfect as an ingredient to a recipe. The shiny color is so alluring to the palates of every tomato lover.
This variety produces hundreds of sweet and juicy tomatoes in just one plant, maybe that's why other gardeners call this variety as 'nature's candy'. There are also delicious food recipes that can be made with cherry tomatoes. Below is a recipe that I chose to share with you today using our star - The Cherry tomato!
Cherry Tomato Bruschetta
Make this simple appetizer for your next party. It works well as a Labor Day appetizer or really for any kind of party, so make more than you think you'll need! It disappears quickly!
What you'll need:
- 1 small loaf semolina bread
- 2 pints (4 cups) small cherry tomatoes
- 8 Tablespoon garlic-flavored oil
- salt and pepper (to taste)
All you need to do for this easy appetizer recipe is first, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Then, cut the bread into 16 to 20 1/2-inch thick slices.
Next, place the bread slices on a cookie sheet in the oven and toast for about 5 minutes on each side, until golden in color and crisp to the touch. Remove them from the oven and place the toasted bread on platter.
Make sure you wash the tomatoes and dry well, removing any stems if they are vine-ripened tomatoes. Then, cut the cherry tomatoes in half through stem ends.
Next, heat 5 tablespoons of the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until they are softened (should take about 5 minutes.) Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Finally, spoon the tomato mixture onto the toasted bread and drizzle with remaining garlic-flavored oil.
This simple appetizer recipe makes about 20 bruschetta. Enjoy!
