5 Healthy Cherry Tomato Recipes


Herbed Stuffed Tomatoes

What makes a better finger food than cherry tomatoes? They're the perfect size for picking up and popping in your mouth. It's almost as if Mother Nature wanted them served at parties. For a great appetizer, try these herbed stuffed tomatoes. The cherry tomatoes will be tiny bowls filled with low-fat cottage cheese and savory herbs. Just cut the ends off of the tomatoes, scoop out the pulp and seeds and fill them with a cottage cheese mixture that includes green onions, chervil, dill and lemon pepper.

Note that cottage cheese isn't necessarily low in fat unless it's 0.5 percent, 1 or 2 percent. For this recipe, we recommend 1-percent cottage cheese for the filling.
