Grape tomatoes are such a versatile, colorful, and delicious addition to any dish. Until recently, they have been used mainly in restaurants and for larger food preparation mostly because of their naturally sweeter flavor than cherry tomatoes, and because of their texture which is nonpulpy with more of a crisp "pop" when you bite into them. In addition, they add a healthy dose of Vitamin C, Lycopene (anti-oxidant), and fiber to any recipe. Here are a few ideas for you to consider trying in your own home kitchen. Don't be afraid to get creative and cook up your own dishes using these bite sized, bright red, healthy, and oh so delicious grape tomatoes. Bon Appetit!
Serve any of these easy appetizers at a party or before dinner with your favorite Chardonnay or Merlot and see how the flavors will blend and delight any palate. Be careful, these can be addictive!
