I adapted this summertime tomato appetizer from a stuffed mushroom recipe that I've used for years. These tasty little treats always win complements—they're perfect at parties or for potlucks and salad luncheons. Best of all, they look like you slaved over them for hours...but they are really very easy to prepare!
