I made this up for a last minute margarita party. I wanted something fresh and simple (and not green) to serve alongside guacamole and salsa verde. This is what I came up with, based on what I had on hand. It's become a favorite. —Meredith Shanley

One bunch equates roughly to?? 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes?
