SERVINGS: 8
PREP TIME: 30
INGREDIENTS
  2  pints cherry tomatoes
  1  avocado, peeled and diced
  1  teaspoon  lemon juice
  1/4  cup  mayonnaise
  8  cooked bacon slices, crumbled
  2  green onions, finely chopped
  Salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS
Cut a small slice from the top of each tomato and scoop out pulp (we used a melon baller).  Discard pulp. Place tomatoes, cut sides down, on paper towels, and let drain 15 minutes.
Combine avocado and lemon juice in a small bowl, toss lightly and drain. Stir together mayonnaise, bacon, and green onions; add avocado mixture, and stir gently until combined.
Spoon avocado mixture evenly into tomato shells. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill 1 hour. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste just before serving.
