the filling is very tasty; you need to find a way for the watery tomatoes to not dilute the intensity of the filling

The yogurt ruined it for me. I was very disappointed because normally I love these ingredients together but this was just a waste of them.

This recipe has real potential. I thought it had too much yogurt and not quite enough zing. I am trying to figure out what flavor I would add to it to make it taste better. But I only used black olives..so maybe the greek olives would make it better.

This was ok but not like I expected. My husband was not crazy about it he ate the insides but not the tomato. I saved the left over "stuffing" mixture and served in a warm pita for lunch the next day. Lunch was a hit!!!

This was so bad that my husband would not even touch them. I tried a little bit of one and thought it was horrible. If you really really like feta cheese and greek olives go for it. Otherwise stay away.

I searched 'tomatoes' and 'feta', and this is what popped up on my screen. I cut the amounts down for one, subbed zucchini for cucumber and dried basil for fresh (cut the amount to just a sprinkle!) and omitted the sugar; I forgot the olives and added some cooked brown rice. Other reviewers thought the yogurt too much -- like most of what I cook from this site, I used the recipe as a guide and added yogurt to MY taste, so it wasn't too wet and the flavor didn't overpower. I microwaved the tomato for 1 minute, then stuffed it, then nuked it again as I'm not a fan of raw zucchini and I wanted the cheese melted. Lovely flavors; the tomato just collapsed, which I liked, tho it wound up on its side by the time I ate it! One of the fastest suppers I've had using just what I had in the fridge. Filing this one for future reference! Thanks for sharing!
