Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 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

  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.
