    EmmyDuckie's Note:

    These are impressive, but almost embarrassingly easy, Think of them as a little appetizer sized Caprese Salad. It makes a huge difference in this recipe if you use good cheese, oil, and vinegar. Adjust the oil and vinegar to your taste, measurements are not exact.

      These are divine. A taste of summer in every bite. This recipe is definitely going in the keeper file. I used heirloom cherry tomatoes and found that a small metal measuring spoon worked perfectly for scooping out the seeds. To keep them from rollin around, I cut a small piece off of the bottom of each tomato so they would stand up. Thank you Emmy! Made for ZWT 4 by a Jefe de la Cocina!

      I used Campari tomatoes. They are about the size of a small egg. I also took another shortcut and used mozzarella balls that I was able to purchase from my deli. These are very yummy and one must be careful not to consume them while making them. I think I ate one for every three that I made – LOL I also made this for ZWT4

      I had some trouble getting the tomatoes hollowed out without making holes in them, so they leaked. But were still very good!
