    gailanng's Note:

    This one gets its name from the delightfully bright pop of flavour of the candied cherry tomatoes. You need to make ahead the candied tomatoes, so give yourself time. You may want just to try the Cherry Bomb Dressing and Salad or Grilled Brie Sandwich separately, so be my guest. Adapted from Chef Liana Robberecht from Calgary.
