Cherry tomatoes are eaten with the fingers unless they are being served in a salad or are included in the preparation of a dish.
1. Select a cherry tomato small enough to fit in your mouth in one bite.
2. Close your mouth before chewing so the tomato does not squirt out of your mouth. This will help prevent the tomato from squirting.
3. If the tomato is too big to eat in one bite, make a small break in the skin with your front teeth before biting the tomato in half.
4. When the tomato is served in a salad or as part of another dish, cut the cherry tomato with your knife and fork. You may want to make a small cut before cutting completely through the tomato so it does not squirt across the table. You may then eat the tomato with your fork.
