Meathead Suggests: Pickled Cherry Tomatoes

Pickled Cherry Tomatoes make a killer vinaigrette or Thousand Island Dressing. It is fun when used judiciously in sauces, especially for fish, and I smashed a few in with some mayo and mustard to make a secret sauce for burgers that had everyone asking for the recipe. I used them in a fresh tomato and onion salad with basil and fresh mozz. It brought a lively zing.
