Cherry Tomatoes

Table manners for eating cherry tomatoes. Except when served as part of a salad or other dish, whole cherry tomatoes are eaten with the fingers. But be careful: They're notorious squirters! It's best to pop the whole tomato into your mouth.

If the tomato is too large to eat in one bite (as some varieties are), pierce the skin with your tooth or a knife before biting the fruit it in half.
