tomato tulips filled with cheese

Impress your guests with these gorgeous
tomato tulips that are so easy to make!

           Tomato Tulips Filled with Cheese
Ingredients for 13 tulips:
13 roma tomatoes
14 stalks green onions
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 small cucumber
½ teaspoon chopped fresh basil
Salt & pepper
A beautiful, decorative appetizer.  We use thirteen because the bouquets should have an odd number of flowers.   

PREPARATION: Slice cucumber very finely or grate, and drain on a paper towel. Mix cucumber with cream cheese and basil, season with salt and pepper. Cut the end of the tomatoes in the shape of a cross.  Poke a hole in the other end with a bamboo skewer and place the stem of green onion into tomato in this hole. Fill the tomatoes with cream cheese mixture. Place on plate and tie the bouquet with the last green onion.

ciao! Fabiana
