My friend Mary served these lovely appetizers at a summer gathering several years ago, and I adapted it a bit to my taste. It's a great August recipe when tomatoes and herbs are at their freshest! —Susan Wilson, Milwaukee, WI

"These tasted and looked great and were easy to make."

"Great tasting, easy to assemble, and amenable to changes to suit tastes. I used three-cheese Italian blend cheese instead of the Gouda because of an allergy to Annatto food dye used in yellow cheeses, and it worked out fine. My family devoured them! Great way to use my garden's tomatoes and basil."

"Easy, taste so yummy and they look fancy. I did a thin layer of sour cream (could use creme fraiche) under the tomato and it made it abit richer. A nice side dish that looks like you fussed!"
