I always like to follow a recipe as written and make any alterations to the recipe, if it was worth a second try, after tasting it once. That said, I made this recipe when I needed to bring something to a cookout and I found tomatoes on sale. I followed the recipe exactly as written BUT I left out the shrimp. (some people are allergic to shellfish and I didn't want to have to post warnings about my contribution to the table especially when the ingredients are not obvious) It was a hit. They were tasty, refreshing little morsels to pop in your mouth. Next time I will try it with a little finely chopped onion or scallions and of course, shrimp.
Nice recipe, DeltaQueen 50.
To the reviewer below. I cleaned the tomatoes and made the cheese filling the night before. Next day, construction was a breeze. You have the right idea about the greens for a "bed to nest" the tomatoes on. Next time try to julienne or finely shred a few lettuce/romaine/cabbage leaves to make a "fluffier bed" for them to nest upon
