  • Sea Salt & Pepper, to taste 

Prepping your Cherry Tomatoes for FillingInstructions & Assembly:

  1. With the stem-side down, cut a cross in the top of each cherry tomato. Note: you’ll want to cut about ¾ of the way down the tomato, not completely through.
  2. Using a spoon, gently scrape out any seeds and discard.
  3. Using a toothpick, make a hole in the stem. Note: you may need to twist the toothpick in order to do this
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine: yogurt, cucumber, and basil. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  5. Fill the tomato “tulips” with 1 tsp. each yogurt mixture.
  6. Insert the asparagus into the hole at the bottom of each tomato.
  7. Clean any excess filling from the outside of the tomatoes with a damp paper towel.
  8. Serve your tomato tulip bouquet on a large plate or platter!
