Marinated Cherry Tomatoes Recipe
Marinated cherry tomatoes are a colorful, juicy and tasty side dish that is perfect for summer parties and entertaining because they can be made ahead! Let tomatoes marinate at least 2-4 hours. They are even better overnight.
- 2 lb cherry tomatoes*
- 1/2 bunch parsley (1/2 cup finely chopped)
- 2 large garlic cloves minced
- 1 1/2 cups light Italian dressing**
Rinse and cut cherry tomatoes in half.
Add the sliced tomatoes to a glass mixing bowl or quart-sized glass jar with lid. Add chopped parsley and minced garlic then add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of Italian dressing or just enough to barely cover the tomatoes.
Stir, cover and let sit at room temperature for at least 2-4 hours to marinate or refrigerate overnight.
*Any variety or color of ripe baby tomatoes will work.
**Do not use a 'creamy' variety of Italian dressing.
