Cherry Tomato Grapes Salad

      The salad kit our generous neighbor gave, had a stash of my favorite cherry tomatoes in it. I wanted to make a salad with this cute li'l fruit, or is it a veggie? I tasted one...then was very sweet...sweeter than the green grapes sitting next to it. Those grapes are sweet with a hint of tartness, i combined them both with balsamic vinegar and parmesan powdered cheese.
