A New Way to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Cherry Oysters. Whatever you think about the romantic qualities usually ascribed to oysters, they do make a delicious one-bite treat when prepared this way. And who knows, maybe the legends are true.

Drain one can of smoked oysters and blot off excess oil with paper towels. Toss oysters with 1/4 cup of vinegar (herbal, if possible). Wash a pint of cherry tomatoes and cut a large X in the rounded end. Fit one oyster down into each X. Arrange on a pretty platter with lemon wedges or twists.
