  • 36 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese (softened)

Steps to Make It

  1. Place tomatoes stem-side down; cut an x in each, to about 1/4-inch from the bottom of each tomato.

  2. Spread carefully to open the wedges without breaking.

  3. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, dressing mix, and milk. Blend well.

  4. Fill each tomato with about 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture.

  5. Sprinkle tops with chopped parsley. Refrigerate for up to 6 hours before serving.
