Make this as an appetizer at an iftar Ramadan party. They were a huge hit! Everyone loved them. I substituted gouda for shredded mozzarella because that is what i had on hand, omitted the oregano and added a drizzle of EVOO and sprinkle of black pepper.

Very easy, very yummy. I made this for my husband and I as a light dinner, since we were only a little hungry. I used slices of Gouda instead of shredded. I also used dry basil and oregano. Worked out great! The only thing I'd change is adding extra black olives, it needed more. I'd make this again!

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!

Mediterranean tomato bites are one my family uses when we have company and need a quick, easy group of appetizers. It's simple, easy and fun to make and the guests usually simply love it.

I made these tonight for an appetizer to use up some of our summer tomatoes. They were easy, delicious, and looked nice too. My husband was impressed, but I didn't tell him how easy they were ; )
