Crab Mix in Cherry Tomatoes

I remember this came out of a California Recipe Book my sister gave me once.

I have made this for different parties as a fun appetizer and everyone really loves both stuffed veggies! These are easy to prepare and largely inexpensive. PLEASE go to next recipe for the Salmon Mix in Snow Peas to complete the look above and to add interest to your presentation.
