Spicy Cherry Tomato Salad

Sep 26, 2008
Recipe Type:

Cherry tomatoes may not be the ones we spend our winters dreaming about, but what they lack in size they make up for in timeliness. They're there for us when we want them, both early in the season, late, and in between. The combination of green onion, garlic, cumin and jalapeno in this recipe will make your taste buds tingle. If you're using a supersweet variety like "Sun Gold," you can cut back on the sugar or eliminate it entirely.


  • 4 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/3 cup green onion thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


Combine 1st 4 ingredients and set aside. Combine the rest and stir until blended...toss over tomato mixture
