Tomato Tulips

12 grape tomatoes, washed

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup minced sweet onion

1 tsp salt

13 green onion tops, washed and dried

In a small bowl, blend the cream cheese, salt, and sweet onion. Set the cream cheese mixture aside.

With a sharp knife, cut a cross in each tomato, extending 3/4 down the length of the tomato. Don’t cut all the way through the tomato. Remove the seeds from the interior of the tomato with a melon baller or a spoon. Gently press the tomato so that it will open up, creating a hollow in the center of the tomato. Fill the hollow with a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture. Cut a small slit in the bottom of each tomato. Insert a green onion into the bottom of each tomato to make a "stem" for the tomato tulip. Arrange the tomato tulips on a platter, and tie the stems together with the extra green onion top.
