Ingredients 

Daisy
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
  • 2 cups Daisy Brand Low Fat Cottage Cheese
  • 32 cherry tomatoes

 

Directions

  1. Place cottage cheese in a strainer to drain extra liquid.
  2. Put cottage cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and chopped chives in a food processor.  Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour mixture in a zip-top bag and place in the refrigerator.
  4. Slice the tops off the cherry tomatoes (if desired presentation is to stand stand up, remove a small slice off the bottom to make flat).
  5. Use a small paring knife to core out centers of tomatoes.  Cut a small hole in the corner of the zip-top bag.  Pip the cottage cheese mixture to fill the centers of the tomatoes.
  6. Reuse the bottoms of cherry tomatoes to place on top and a sprig of parsley for decoration.
  7. Serve immediately. Refrigerate left-overs.
