I think I've found a winner! I cannot wait to serve these up to my friends in one of my fun margarita glasses - you know, the ones that are as big as your head!?!? Cooking time is actually marinating time. Serve with Margarita Dipping Salt. From Oprah.com.

Directions

  1. With a wooden or metal skewer, puncture each cherry tomato with 5 to 10 holes; place in a nonreactive bowl.
  2. By hand, or in a food processor with knife blade attached, finely chop beefsteak tomatoes; transfer to a medium bowl.
  3. Finely chop onion; add to beefsteak tomatoes.
  4. Stir in salt; let stand 5 minutes.
  5. Strain mixture through a fine sieve, pressing hard on the solids (should yield about 2 cups liquid). Discard solids.
  6. Grate zest from 2 lemons. Squeeze enough juice from 3 lemons to equal 1/2 cup.
  7. Gently stir tomato water, lemon zest, lemon juice and remaining ingredients (except margarita salt) into cherry tomatoes.
  8. Cover and refrigerate, keeping tomatoes submerged in liquid, at least 3 days or up to 1 week.
  9. To serve, place tomatoes in a glass bowl or a margarita glass. Cover with marinade.
  10. Provide tooth picks or wooden skewers for serving.
  11. Serve margarita dipping salt on the side.
