We usually use Grape tomatoes for salads and such at work. But, cherry toms will also work like that.
If you saute any fresh veggies, like squash, add some cherry tomatoes in the last minute or two.
If you have the time, and patience, you could slice off the top stem end, and a small slice off the bottom, so they will stand up. Use a melon-baller to hollow them out, and stuff with a stuffing of some kind.
Peace, Love, and Vegetable Rights!
