Absolutely impossible to scoop out the cherry tomatoes - way too time consuming. After two, I minced up all of the tomatoes and added them to the rest of the ingredients to use as a dip.

These are excellent! I did as others suggested and used the Campari tomatoes and I added diced avocado and lettuce. Other than that made as stated and these were so simple and easy.

I followed another reviewer and used Campari tomatoes with half cream cheese and half mayo. Since it was just two of us I tried wrapping some long lettuce leaves around each one (with careful instructions to hubby to watch for toothpick holders). They made a great side dish - thanks so much for the recipe, we'll use it again soon!

This is a great recipe. I use campari tomatoes, slit lengthwise, and scooped out. Easier and faster than using cherry tomatoes. And you get a bigger bite!

5 stars for taste. These are so, so tasty! But the prep is tedious. Cutting and scooping out 40 cherry tomatoes took a while and I have decent knife skills. Will make the filling again but as a topping or dip.

I made these to take to a party and they were a hit. I cut a small piece off the bottom of each tomato so they would sit up. I used a 1/8 teaspoon to scoop out the insides. I pulsed the filling in my food processor and used a ziplock bag filled and with the end snipped off to fill the tomatoes. They do take time but worth it. Everyone loved them.

I love this recipe and have made it several times in a couple of different ways. It's very versatile, easy to make, and can be used as a dip or spread. Typically I'll forego the cherry tomatoes altogether (to save time) and I'll use it as a dip for cucumber slices or carrots. I often double the mayo, parmesan, and green onion, and add about a tsp of garlic powder. I've also added shredded cheese to it as well. Tonight I'm going to a work party and I'm going to try spreading it on a ritz cracker and topping it with a bit of tomato.

I substituted cream cheese for the mayo and made two batches, one with regular cream cheese and one with herb cream cheese. I did have to work the cream cheese in a bowl with a spoon or small spatula to make it pliable, but I knew that would be necessary. The only downside of this recipe was the treatment of the tomatoes - it took quite a bit longer than expected. I had followed some other reviewers' advice and cut a small sliver off of the bottom so they would sit upright more easily. But then I ended up plating them on frilly greens, so that was a wasted step. Cleaning them out still took some time. BUT, for a no-cook recipe, it got great reviews, is very pretty, and I will definitely make it again (but will edit my tomato trimming :)

These were good. I shortcutted and bought Real Bacon bits (said 50% reduced fat on the bag). I didn't get as many tomatoes out of the recipe, mine were gigantic though they were marked cherry. Swapped mayo out and used sour cream.
