Cute cherry TOMATOES (not cherries) filled with crab. they're cut in half, stuffed, and put back together with a toothpick. Very cute indeed.
(you can use white albacore tuna in place of the crab, if you like.)
Really need a picture.

How to Make Cute Cherry/Crab Appetizers


  1. Remove stems from washed tomatoes; cut off tops to make small caps, set aside, and scoop pulp from bottoms.
  2. In medium bowl, blend cream cheese, sour cream and sherry; stir in remaining filling ingredients.
  3. Fill tomatoes with crab mixture. Stick toothpicks into centers of caps, and stick securely into filled tomatoes. Will hold several hours. *NOTE: if you'd like, when inserting toothpicks into tomatoes, add tiny sprig of parsley to tomato cap before toothpicking.
  4. Refrigerate till serving time.
