A Candy Salad That's Healthy for You

Got your attention, didn’t I?
Well, if you’ve ever had great cherry tomatoes (the season is starting now), you know they taste as sweet as candy. The wonderful part, though, is that the sweetness and superior flavor don’t come from refined sugars, hydrogenated oils and other synthetic compounds. It’s just Mother Nature at her finest.
The best places to buy cherry tomatoes are from farm stands or farmers markets, which will increase the chances that you are getting recently-picked fruits, rather than ones that have been packed and shipped across the continent. And if you can, go organic, they will taste even sweeter!
One of my favorite ways to enjoy cherry tomatoes is in a very simple salad. You’ll be amazed at how much flavor can be achieved from so few ingredients; alter the amounts to your individual taste, but err to the side of caution. You really want the sweetness of the cherry tomatoes to be the defining flavor.
