These bite-sized morsels with a fresh crabmeat filling are easy to make and easy to eat. From the American Diabetes Association web page. I sometimes use these on a bed of torn greens for a quick lunch meal.
- 36 large cherry tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon salt

- Invert the tomatoes on paper towels and let them drain while you prepare the filling.
