    Put them on pizza for fresh tomato and basil pizza, stuff them with cheese and quick broil, lightly saute with herbs and mix with pasta. I have a ton of cucumbers too, so I have been making a creamy tomato and cucumber salad that I eat with everything: eggs, burgers, tuna, by itself....

    Oh also missed one of my favorites: quarter a bunch of cherry tomatoes, toss with some drained canned beans (black beans, kidney, can also add corn if you want), a little olive oil, some lime juice, chopped jalepeno, a little cilantro, seasonings for a great bean salad that even gets better the next day.

    No great ideas BUT if all else fails maybe simmer them some in olive oil and freeze. Can use in place of canned tomatoes I bet? Would be yummier too.

    tomato sandwich but not sure how easy it would be to make with cherry tomatoes. Soft white bread, mayo and salt and pepper. YUM!

    I haven't tried this yet (so not taste-tested) but I want to do it when I start having a ton of cherry tomatoes. I think this is perfect for cherry tomatoes because they are so small and wouldn't take as longer as larger tomatoes.

    Sun-Dried Tomatoes


    • 4 pounds tomatoes
    • salt to taste


    Directions


    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
    2. Wash and halve tomatoes. Gently squeeze out the seeds. Place the tomatoes on a non-stick cookie sheet, and sprinkle with salt to taste.
    3. Bake until tomatoes take on a leathery texture. This could literally take all day; smaller pieces will require less oven time.


    It looks like some people store them packed in jars or in a zip-lock freezer bag and freeze. Then can be used as is, or rehydrated with a bit of hot water, or drizzled with olive oil.
