This recipe will keep you coming back for seconds and thirds! No joke. I ate three bowlfuls for dinner. I’m pretty sure I’m addicted to the cherry tomatoes roasted with raspberry balsamic vinegar and honey. They are so mouthwatering and honestly you could spoon it on crusty bread for a little appetizer if you ever had the inclination.
Make sure you read the entire recipe so you don’t miss out on your ingredient list. I have the recipe separated into steps to help make it easier to follow.
