24 NatureSweet® Comets™ tomatoes
1/4 pound lump crab meat
2 tsp. mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. chives, minced
1/8 tsp. Old Bay® Seasoning
4 drops Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1 squeeze lemon juice
Cayenne pepper to taste
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste


Cut the tops off the Sunbursts® tomatoes, and carefully scoop out a portion of the pulp to accommodate the crab filling. Sprinkle the insides of the tomatoes with salt, and then place upside down on a paper towel to allow the excess juices to drain.
Pick through the crab meat to make sure it is free of shell fragments.
In a small bowl, add crab meat, mayonnaise, Old Bay Seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, minced chives, and lemon zest. Season to taste with lemon juice, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Mix to combine.
Using a small spoon, equally divide the crab mixture between tomatoes.
