Cherry Tomato Salad

Debby DeRousse


I had this one time at a baby shower I attended.I fell in love with my first bite. I loved the favors but couldn't pin point what a certain flavor was...I asked the person that made it and she said that flavor was mint! This is a favorite of mine now. It is light and refreshing!
