Cucumber-Dill Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes
I am SO ready for winter to be over!
At the end of summer your looking forward to a bit cooler weather, making warm home cooked meals such as casseroles, dishes in the crock-pot, hot apple pie and warm dips.
And at the end of Winter your wanting summer back and you start thinking of light meals and things I can make our of my garden.
Speaking of garden I am almost tripling that bad boy this year, I'm going to be a busy girl!!
This appetizer makes me think of summer!
Here is what you will need:
24 Cherry tomatoes
3 oz of softened cream cheese
2 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup finely chopped, seeded cucumber
1 Tablespoon finely chopped green onions
2 Teaspoons chopped fresh dill
How to make them:
Remove stems for tomatoes (if there are any, usually not)
Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each tomato
With a very small spoon or best yet ,use a melon baller, hollow out each tomato , leaving 1/8 inch shell.
Lay your tomatoes opening side down onto a paper towel to drain
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and mayo, blend well.
Stir in cucumber, green onion and dill mix well
Fill tomato's with the cream cheese mixture,
Cover loosely and refrigerate for 2 hours
