“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 ¼-teaspoon measuring spoon works very well for the job.”

Ingredients

    • 24 cherry tomatoes (about 1 pint)
    • 3 ounces goat cheese
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green olives
    • 1 tablespoon low-fat milk
    • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more for garnish
    • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano

Directions

  • 1 Slice about ¼ 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 ⅛ 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.
