Red and green are the colors for Christmas, so it is only fitting that these colors be used in presenting appetizers. This recipe for stuffed tomatoes fits the bill perfectly.
1 brick (8 oz.) cream cheese
½ cup finely chopped black olives
½ cup finely chopped pimentos
½ cup finely chopped parsley
2 dozen cherry tomatoes, halved, with the seeds scooped out
Mix the cream cheese, olives, pimentos and half of the parsley together in a mixing bowl. Reserve half of the parsley for garnish. Stuff each of the tomato halves with the cream cheese mixture and top with a sprinkling of the reserved parsley. Arrange on a platter and decorate with additional parsley sprigs.
