Directions:
1. With the stem side down, cut across in the top of each cherry tomato (about ¾ down the tomato).
2. Using a spoon (grapefruit spoon works very well here) gently scrape out the tomato seeds.
3. Take a grilling skewer or toothpick and make a hole where the stem currently is. You may need to twist the skewer
in a circle a few times to make room for the chive to fit through.
4. Finely chop or grate the cucumber.
5. Mix cream cheese, cucumber, and basil in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
6. Add a teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into each tomato tulip (adjust depending on the size of your tomatoes).
7. Insert a chive into the hole at the bottom of each tomato.
8. Use a damp paper towel to clean any excess cream cheese filling from outside of tomatoes.
9. Prepare the tulip tomato bouquet on a large plate or platter. Use the extra chive stalk to wrap around the tulip stems to
complete the bouquet.
10. ENJOY!

  3. These are the cutest things I’ve ever seen! Wish I would’ve seen them sooner because I can think of 5 previous parties that these should’ve attended. Pinning it for later!

  4. If you cut a bamboo skewer to whatever length you need and stick it into the chive or green onion stem, then into the tomato, you can make a flower that will stand in a vase for your tablescape. I love the filling you used in the tomatoes.

  5. These look like a lot of fun to make and eat! I am saving this for future snacking and parties! Visiting you today from Busy Monday link up

  6. I made these for Easter, but I’d like to make a couple of suggestions, if I may…
    Chop the cucumber, not grate, and drain the cucumber VERY WELL.
    My first attempt turned out more like a dip, which would have been perfect, if I had wanted a veggie dip. The taste was great, but couldn’t stuff the tomatoes with it, so had to re-do.
