    Making tulips: Use elongated (oval shape) large grape tomatoes. Cut a tomato crosswise, but not to the very bottom. Remove the flesh out of each tomato and put some salad inside. Sprinkle a little grated egg yolk in center tops. Make the tulip stems out of green onion tops. Add some dill as greenery. Put a bow around your bouquet.
