So quick and easy if you have an abundance of cherry tomatoes even better! Great little appetizers to serve on your favourite cracker. I have guessed the serving size and the amount of tomatoes (as I use my own from the garden), although it did make lots of crackers up. I did have some spread left over and used it on sandwiches next day! Tomatoes can also be kept a few days!
