METHOD

Cut the top off of each cherry tomato, and use a melon ball scooper (or small spoon) to remove inner pulp, and discard. Place cherry tomatoes upside down on paper towels to drain. In a large bowl, combine the salmon, green onion, red pepper, spices, lemon juice and mayonnaise, mixing well. Spoon into tomatoes.

In a small bowl, beat with a hand mixer the cream cheese and milk until smooth. Insert a large star tip into a pastry (or plastic) bag. Pipe a small amount of cream cheese mixture over salmon mixture on top of tomatoes. Garnish with chopped chives, and place each tomato on individually torn lettuce leaves placed around serving platter. – Enjoy!
