Yield: 8 Servings
|1 pint||Cherry tomatoes|
|½ cup||Tequila; or more|
|1 small||Head leaf lettuce|
|1 pack||Dry Italian or blue cheese dressing mix or-|
|1 tablespoon||Seasoned salt & pepper|

Rinse tomatoes, then pierce each with wooden toothpick. Place in single layer in a dish; pour in enough tequila to make a shallow layer. Let stand at least 30 minutes at room temperature. To serve, cover a large platter with lettuce leaves, watercress or grape leaves; center the platter with a small glass of tequila, a small glass of wooden toothpicks and a small dish containing salad dressing mix (or seasoned salt & pepper) mixed with pequin. Arrange tomatoes atop greens. To eat, spear a tomato with a wooden pick, dip in tequila, then dip lightly in salad dressing mixture. Makes 8-12 servings, depending on rest of the menu.
