Here's a quick salad to fix with flavors that shout summer. To easily cut a dozen cherry tomatoes in half, place a plastic lid from a quart yogurt tub upside down on the counter. Load as many cherry tomatoes as possible to fill the lid. Place another plastic lid that is the same size over the tomatoes. With a sharp knife, slice through the opening of the lids from side to side. Visit or scan the QR code below the recipe to watch a demonstration.
