Marinated Cherry Tomatoes with Arugula

I served this simple salad with some grilled cheddar bratwurst.


1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
6 ounces arugula, washed and dried
2 ounces shaved Parmesan

* I also added crumbled bacon and prosciutto


Combine the cherry tomatoes in a medium bowl with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the sugar, lemon juice, vinegar and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Marinate at room temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.

If the marinated cherry tomatoes have released a lot of juice, pour a little off before adding the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil.

Place the arugula in a salad bowl and season lightly with salt and pepper. Add the cherry tomato mixture and toss to combine. Top with the Parmesan.
