Charring Tomatoes for Beautiful Salads

Grab one or two punnets of cherry tomatoes. Heat a pan until very hot and drizzle in some olive oil. Shake the pan to distribute the olive oil. Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 – 4 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until the tomatoes are slightly charred on several sides.

Salt them while they are in the pan, then remove from the pan and use them hot or at room temperature.

Easy.
