|nori flavored tomato and mixed greens|
There are a couple of items to remember in making warm or cold BABY tomato salads. When warm at least you can get away with a quick saute or simple blanching to soften skins. Cold, I suggest cutting them as you don't have to chase the little shapes around the plate or bowl, and they are a whole lot easier to fork with or without greens. You can see I test this in the photo and believe me, a spoon is the only solution to leaving baby tomatoes whole. And if marinated, they do not soften as well whole.

I added chopped, flaked NORI to make a quik farmer's tomato and greens snack dressed with a touch of lemon juice and few drops of sunflower oil.
Tomatoes get a nutritional density score of 190 and the nori addition ups the anti with its own 209. I love the flavor and sea vegetable toastiness. Puts me right back in the water diving! The Vegetable Alchemist
