Tips & Tricks

If you want your tomato Santas to look even cuter, make eyes and buttons with peppercorns or black olives chopped into tiny pieces.

Make sure your cherry tomatoes are fresh and firm. Overripe tomatoes won’t hold their shape well, especially after adding the stuffing.

These stuffed cherry tomatoes hold well in the fridge for up to two days.
