Tomatoes… Scare Me Not!
With the recent salmonella outbreak linked to raw tomatoes, we should all be reminded of the importance of food safety. The Food and Drug Administration is advising people to eat only tomatoes not associated with the outbreak: cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, tomatoes sold with the vine still attached and tomatoes grown at home. This reminds me, I think it is time for me to plant some tomatoes in my back yard!
Today I have a tomato recipe that you can prepare without worries.
Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes
1 pint cherry tomatoes, washed
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
4 green onions, chopped fine
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
Slice the top off of each tomato and gently scoop out the pulp with a small spoon. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, green onions and salt until smooth. Spoon the mixture into each tomato and garnish with a sprinkle of paprika.
