These are great for canapes, a picnic, side salad or tasty snack. The colour combination of the red tomato and green guacamole are bright and pleasing to the eye, let alone the flavour combination being pleasing to the taste buds. I used cherry tomatoes as the balance between the amount of guacamole and tomato seemed to balance for my tastes but you could use large tomatoes. To me, these were the perfect vessels for guacamole…I love the stuff and could eat it by itself with a big spoon! This way feels a bit more elegant although they can be messy stuffing the tomatoes, but that might just be me…..
Feel free to use your own guacamole recipe to stuff the tomatoes too…some people have their own spin on it!
15 cherry tomatoes

3 ripe avocados
1 plum tomato, chopped (seeds removed)

- Cut a thin slice from the top of the tomato and scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon.
