Marinated Grape Tomatoes with Shallot and Garlic

Marinated Grape Tomatoes with Shallot and Garlic

I love this side dish because it’s very easy to make and super versatile. You can use whatever flavor of vinegar you want, you can skip the crushed red pepper flakes and use fresh herbs instead (or use both!). I let the tomatoes marinate for at least an hour before serving to allow all of the flavors to mingle. It’s a nice side dish that pairs well with chicken, seafood, pork, or beef and my entire family enjoys it.
