Cherry tomatoes are small, bite-sized tomatoes that are known for their sweet and tangy flavor. They are often used in salads, salsas, and as a garnish for various dishes. Cherry tomatoes are a good source of vitamins and antioxidants, and can be enjoyed raw or cooked. When selecting cherry tomatoes, look for firm and plump fruits with a bright, glossy skin. Store cherry tomatoes at room temperature for up to a few days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week. To prepare cherry tomatoes, rinse them under cold water and slice them in half or leave them whole for snacking.
