Briefly heating the tomatoes intensifies their sweetness while preserving their sweetness while preserving their bright, fresh flavor. Use any variety of small summer tomatoes you find at the market; for a gorgeous look, mix tomato colors and shapes, such as yellow and orange pear tomatoes paired with grape tomatoes.
