Take your side salad to the next level!


  • 6 NatureSweet Glorys® tomatoes
  • 12 NatureSweet Comets™ tomatoes
  • 1 Kirby/pickling cucumber, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 12 small fresh basil leaves
  • 6 small baby portabella mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese, cut into 12 squares
  • 2 tbsp. whipped cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds or poppy seeds
  • Your choice of cooking spray


  1. Cut the NatureSweet Comets™ tomatoes in half.
  2. Using the flatter, stem side of the Comets™ tomato as the bottom, build a tiny “slider” with a piece of basil first, then a slice of cucumber, a slice of mushroom, a slice of cheese, a slice of Glorys® tomato, a small dollop of cream cheese, and top with the other half of the Comets™ tomato.
  3. Skewer with a toothpick.
  4. Spray the top of the tomato “slider” with cooking spray, and sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds to make it look more like a burger bun.

    The key to making the “sliders” look like mini burgers is to find cucumber and mushroom slices that are about the same size as the tomato.
