Next, chop the garlic finely, pass the cheese and boiled eggs through a large Turk, collect all the separate deep dishes and squeeze the garlic to them.
Add a certain amount of mayonnaise and stir all ingredients thoroughly.
Separately, fill each tomato with cooked crab stick, egg and cheese filling.
Use a paper towel to remove any remaining filling from the petals.
Place the green onions in a flat serving dish after rinsing and cutting off the ends.
On the side of the onion feathers, place the stuffed tulip tomatoes in a row and give them the appearance of a bouquet of flowers.
Finally, decorate your festive tulip bouquet with thinly sliced cucumber pieces.
The result is so inspiring and such an event is remembered for a long time that on subsequent holidays, be it a birthday or a romantic evening, it will be difficult to give up the temptation and not repeat it all over again.
Tomato flower arrangement
If you've ever cooked such a snack, then you will definitely want to repeat everything again. On this occasion, you can diversify the recipe a little, make the filling from other components, or even simplify it altogether.
To prepare this salad you will need: Greek feta cheese made from sheep's milk, cream tomatoes, fresh green onions and dill.

For the filling, wash the greens, cut and separate the onion feathers, and finely chop the white part along with the dill.
Collect everything in one bowl, add chopped cheese and combine all the ingredients.
Fill the tomatoes with cheese and herbs, fill so that the filling does not peep out of the petals.
