FoodBuzz 24X24 TOMATO POPPERS Snack

And here we go for our day at the Farmer's Market.

The idea was to make an event from the trip.    Not just to shop and come home and make a salad, but to actually plan for a full morning's worth of cooking in order to make a spectacular lunch.

But all that work calls for a few snacks to keep us going.

I first saw this a couple of weeks ago on Sam's blog, MY CAROLINA KITCHEN.  I knew it would only be  a matter of time before I gave it a shot.  Impossibly simple, but perfect for the project...

Just buy a batch of those multi-colored, multi-shaped little beauties, heirloom grape tomatoes.  

Bring em home, wash and remove any of the remaining stems and foliage that might still be there.

Leave them wet.

Pop 'em in a small paper bag (still wet).  Add a tsp of Dill and a tsp chives and a tsp of course grind sea salt

Shake shake shake and you are done!

After spending over an hour pouring over all that fresh beautiful produce, these were a great first snack course for the day.  Really set the mood for local, fresh and fun during our FOODBUZZ 24X24 sponsored event...

A Day at the Farmer's Market!

  1. Aw, you found the pretty ones Dave. The best I could find were two colors. So glad you like the tomato poppers and thanks for the shout-out.

  2. Now I just have to find the multicolored tomatoes. I liked this one when I saw it over at Sams. The paper back technique is so fun, how could you not want to try this one.
