I came up with these for a party the other day. They were gone in minutes. Everyone commented on how good they were. I used tomatoes slightly larger than cherry tomatoes and they were a 2 bite appetizer but cherry tomatoes would be perfect too. I'm thinking these would be great for Easter, Mother's Day or a 4th of July BBQ as well. Hope you like these.
