Marinated Cherry Tomatoes Over Garlic Bread

I have bucket loads of cherry tomatoes coming in. I found this recipe that looks like a good way to use them.

Yield: 4 servings

2 pt Cherry tomatoes, preferably
-mixed colors, stems removed
-cut in half
2 Green onions, white part
-only, coarsely chopped
1/4 c Finely chopped parsley
1 tb Finely chopped rosemary, or
2 ts Dried chopped rosemary
3 Garlic cloves, peeled, ends
-removed, minced
1/3 c Extra-virgin olive oil
3 tb Balsamic vinegar
Salt, freshly ground black
-pepper to taste

------------------PROVOLONE GARLIC BREAD------------------
3 tb Extra-virgin olive oil
3 Garlic cloves, peeled,
-ends removed, minced
4 lg Thick slices of crusty bread
4 Slices (1 1/2 ounces each)
-provolone cheese
1/4 c Freshly grated Parmesan

1. Mix tomatoes, green onions, parsley, rosemary,
garlic, olive oil and vinegar in a shallow bowl.
Season with salt and pepper. Cover the bowl and let
tomatoes marinate at room temperature at least 1 hour,
but preferably 3 to 4 hours or overnight. Stir

2. For garlic bread, mix olive oil and garlic in a
small bowl and let stand 10 minutes so the flavors
blend. Meanwhile, heat broiler. Brush one side of each
bread piece with the garlic/olive oil mixture, and
broil, oiled side up, until lightly browned. Place a
slice of provolone and a generous sprinkling of
Parmesan on toasted side of each slice, saving a
little for garnish. Set the bread aside.

3. Just before serving, heat the broiler. Toast the
bread under the broiler until cheese is bubbly. To
serve, put a piece of the bread in a shallow soup
bowl. Spoon about 3/4 cup of the tomatoes and
marinade on or around the edges of the bread. Garnish
with more Parmesan and serve.

Sherry Cherry Tomatoes

Oh wow that sounds fantastic!

If you still have a bunch of tomatoes leftover here is another good recipe...

Sherry Cherry Tomatoes

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
3 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or dry sherry wine
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Preheat a skillet over medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil, garlic and onions. Sweat them out 2 to 3 minutes then add cherry tomatoes. Turn tomatoes to coat in fat. Add sherry vinegar or sherry, sugar, pepper flakes and salt. Toss to coat tomatoes and roast for 18 to 20 minutes.

GB, my tomatoes are all ready to pick again, so I'll have plenty to try your recipe. I need to buy some sherry though. I've been meaning to do that, as quite a few recipes call for it.
