Balsamic and Honey Skillet-Glazed Cherry Tomatoes is the perfect healthy side dish when you are craving something light, fast, and flavorful!
I made a vow to enjoy winter more this year. Something about freezing cold temperatures, shoveling snow, and sitting inside under a self-imposed house arrest never appealed to me. I'd like to say I've been succeeding in my effort to cozy up to the more frigid pages of the calendar, I even have plans to go hiking around the woods in a few hours. But truth is, I still want to drown old man winter in a giant vat of sunscreen.
However, cooking bright dishes like this Balsamic and Honey Skillet-Glazed Cherry Tomatoes helps remind me better weather is around the corner.
These glazed cherry tomatoes really are a great side dish for any season. Bright and fresh enough for summer, but heated in a skillet, they are perfect to warm up your taste buds even on the coldest days! Plus they add a great splash of color to often drab winter meals.
This is another recipe I have been making for years, make it once and you will see why. The warmed cherry tomatoes burst with a concoction of tart juices and a delectably sweet glaze while tender pine nuts add a welcome textural contrast. This is an ideal healthy side dish to pair with chicken breasts or pork chops.
I originally discovered this Balsamic and Honey Skillet-Glazed Cherry Tomatoes recipe when I purchased the Gourmet Nutrition Cookbook quite a few years back. It is specifically written for fitness enthusiasts who want meals with exceptional taste without jeopardizing their waistline. It has been one of the few cookbooks that have been spared from my multiple cleaning purges over the years, and I happily recommend it for anyone looking to eat healthy.
