Appetizers are so fun, don’t you agree? But sometimes making them bite sized can get tedious. I’m going to show you how to get lots of flavor using few ingredients so you have more time to be with your guests and enjoy your own party! Imagine that. I love it when appetizers can just be picked up and popped into my mouth. These whipped goat cheese tomatoes bites are the perfect size for snacking and won’t leave your fingers sticky with sauce. Using a premade vinaigrette dressing, fresh basil and goat cheese really brings a nice burst of flavor to these one bite appetizers!
Whipped Goat Cheese Tomato Bites
If you are having a get together soon or just a fun night in with lots of appetizers, don’t stress! Using KRAFT pourable dressings help to cut your prep time down and making these cute tomato bites ahead of time will save even more time. While gathering my ingredients at Walmart for this dish, I picked up KRAFT pourable dressings in both Zesty Italian and Ranch flavors. You can find them in the condiments aisle by all the salad dressings.
They are hard to miss, KRAFT makes lots of flavors of salad dressing but what I love about these flavors is you can use them for so much more than just salads or marinades. Using the Zesty Italian for my tomato bites gave lots of flavor without having to make my own vinaigrette.
The new KRAFT pourables have been reinvented with a new, better taste. The Classic Ranch has more buttermilk and savory herbs and Zesty Italian now has even more herbs and spices, perfect for this quick appetizer!
I can’t wait to make a Buffalo Chicken Dip with the Classic Ranch, yum! I know you can’t wait to see the recipe for these flavorful tomatoes, here ya go:
- 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes
- 3 oz goat cheese
- 1 Tbls KRAFT Zesty Italian dressing
- 4 fresh basil leaves, fine chop
- salt and pepper to taste
- Wash tomatoes and let dry. With a pairing knife, carefully cut the top off at the stem end. On the bottom end, cut a very small piece off so the tomato can stand up and won't tip over. Using a pairing knife, carefully core the inside of the tomato, getting as much of the seeds out that you can but don't pierce all the way through the bottom. Core all tomatoes and set aside.
- While coring tomatoes, take out goat cheese, place in bowl and let come to room temperature. Add remaining ingredients. With a hand mixer, whip on low for about a minute until cheese is smooth and mixed with ingredients. Place in piping bag with large whole tip or in a zip lock bag and cut a corner for easy stuffing.
- Stuff cored tomatoes with goat cheese mixture. Serve and enjoy!
