Smoked Trout Salad in Cherry Tomato Cups

Food From Friends, Salads

Makes 10 (3-piece) servings

1/4 pound smoked trout (remove skin if necessary)
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Freshly ground black pepper
30 large cherry tomatoes (1 pint)
Chopped fresh chives for garnish (optional)

Place trout in a medium bowl and break up into small pieces with a fork. Add sour cream, lemon juice, and chives; stir to combine. Season generously with pepper.

Using a serrated knife, cut 1/8 inch off the stem end of each tomato and a tiny bit off the bottom so the tomatoes will stand. Remove the seeds using a small melon baller. Fill each hollow tomato with a generous teaspoon of the trout salad. Sprinkle each with a few chives, if using, and serve.
