Balsamic Marinated Cherry Tomatoes

I use these Balsamic Marinated Cherry Tomatoes in many of the salads I make, including my Weekend Gourmet Signature Green Salad and my Independence Day Orzo Salad. Quick and simple to make, fresh and delicious. Without the tomatoes, it’s a simple balsamic viniagrette recipe.

Add tomatoes and stir slightly to ensure that all tomatoes are covered, absorbing marinade. Let sit for at least 1/2 hour, gently stirring once or twice. If using later, cover and refrigerate. These may be drained added to any salad, or you may also add the liquid for a balsamic viniagrette dressing.
