These bright red festive bites are a show stopping finger food during the holiday season, at Easter and for the Fourth of July. With the smoked salmon filling, these appetizers seem elegant...and they're convenient because you can prepare them ahead.

"This was delicious!! I wasn't sure how keen my kids would be on the lox separate from the cream cheese, so I combined the cream cheese with the lox/peppers/onion mix and then just filled the tomatoes with the result. I then topped with dill and voila! Everyone loved them, including my chef father-in-law. I had leftover filling, so I mixed in dill and refrigerated it overnight for bagels. Yum!"

"I think this takes longer than 25 minutes if you're working alone. I would plan for at least an hour. They were a great hit though and taste great! Very creative."
