"Make sure you use real mayo in this recipe."

"a little bit picky cleaning out the tomatoes, but everyone loved these so it was worth it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2012 Edited Jan. 27, 2013

"I have made this recipe using fat free, lite and regular mayo. It tastes best using real and that's what I use when I take it to a party. I use either lite or fat free for home. I have found that using a 1/4 tsp measure works very well for scooping the insides out of the cherry tomatoes."
