Holiday Party Ideas - Shrimp Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

48 cherry tomatoes
1/2 lb. small shrimp, shelled and deveined
3 tablespoons minced onion
3 tablespoons minced parsley
1 small avocado
2 tablespoons each of olive oil and lemon juice or
1/4 cup good Italian dressing
Salt and pepper to taste

Chop the shrimp and add the minced onion and parsley to it. (These can be prepared together in a food processor, if you like.)

Mince the avocado without mashing it.

Combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the chopped items and mix well. Set aside.

Slice about a third off the top of each tomato. Carefully scoop out the seeds and a little of the pulp with a very small spoon or melon scoop.

Stuff the tomatoes with the shrimp mixture, mounding slightly. Chill.
