This olive-and-goat-cheese-stuffed cherry tomato recipe makes a great pop-in-your-mouth appetizer. Scooping out the insides to stuff the tomato can be a little tricky without the right tool—a 1/4-teaspoon measuring spoon works very well for the job.

  • 24 cherry tomatoes (about 1 pint)
  • 3 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green olives
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Slice about 1/4 inch off the top of each tomato. If necessary, trim a sliver off the bottom so the tomato sits flat. Gently scoop out the seeds with a small spoon or the tip of a small knife.
  2. Mash goat cheese, olives, milk and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl until well combined. Fill each hollowed tomato with a generous 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture. Sprinkle with oregano and more pepper, if desired.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Prepare and hold at room temperature for up to 2 hours.

Cute and delicious! This is a great appetizer for a party. My non-vegetarian friends really liked it. It took me quite a while to core out the tomatoes, but it was worth it just for the impressive presentation. I used some mild green olives, which was a mistake. If I were to make this again, I'd use Sicilian olives, or something that packs more of a punch. Also, I added fresh chives, which was an improvement. It's important to make it ahead so the flavors will meld. All in all, a delicious dish! Pros: healthy, visually appealing, make ahead, delicoius Cons: time of preparation
