The pleasure of this dish comes from the salt's crunchy texture against the juicy cherry tomatoes. This recipe showcases the distinctive taste of sea salt, but kosher salt will work, too. Add the salt just before serving.
4 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
